D'Arcy Kennels is based in St Petersburg, Florida, and runs at Derby Lane. The kennel is owned and operated by Mick D'Arcy; who has over 40 years experience as an owner, trainer and breeder. Mick trained for Greymeadow Kennel at Derby Lane for over 10 years; and now operates his own kennel with the same philosophy "the dogs come first!"
D'Arcy kennels prides itself on the care and attention given to our greyhounds. Each dog is trained in an individual manner; knowing full well that greyhounds are not 'one size fits all'. We customize training programs for each dog to ensure their true abilities are realized. We have weekly kennel visits by an acupuncture physician.
We've been honored to house several All American greyhounds from the 2007, 2006, 2005 (2nd Team), 2000, 1999 and 1998 teams. Please see the "Stakes Winners" page for a detailed list of our accomplishments.
Some of our ex-racers have retired to the breeding paddocks; these girls are the backbone of our kennel and are responsible for the next generation of Derby Lane superstars. Check out the 'Broods' link for more information.
