Darley Stud is a thoroughbred breeding operation owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai and vice-president of the United Arab Emirates. Darley breeds horses in Australia, France, Ireland, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States.[1]

Darley was founded in 1981 when Sheikh Mohammed purchased Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket, Suffolk, now home to some of Europe's leading stallions including Dubawi and New Approach. Stallions who have stood at Dalham Hall include the great Dubai Millennium. Born at Dalham Hall Stud and was trained in Newmarket, Dubai Millennium won the Dubai World Cup in 2000 and the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot the same year. In the United States, Darley is based at the historic Jonabell Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. Irish operations are at Kildangan Stud in Kildangan, County Kildare. Darley has two studs in Australia, one in Victoria and one in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales.

Darley also has a stud in Japan and in 2012, stood stallions in China for the first time.
