Adrian has worked for Coolmore Stud since 2001 and has been employed at their American farm Ashford Stud for the majority of that time. A native of Tipperary, Ireland Adrian grew up on his family’s stud farm, Grenane House Stud, where they breed a small number of mares every year. He was educated at Glenstal Abbey school which is a Benedictine boarding school in County Limerick, Ireland. After he graduated he decided on a Gap year at Ashford Stud and has been there ever since.
