Long-time CTHS member and past board director Dermot Carty passed away today. Dermot worked for Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs North for over 30 years as a bloodstock agent, stallion manager, and advisor. Dermot purchased many successful sires and sire lines in his career and was very influential in Ontario’s breeding industry.

He joined the board of the CTHS in 2018 also serving on the National board. He resigned this spring for health reasons.

“Dermot was a strong voice in support of Ontario breeders. He could be counted on to share his opinion on any policy that would impact Ontario breeders and stallion owners,” said Peter Berringer, President of CTHS-Ontario. “He was a passionate believer in the importance of a strong Ontario-sired program to support the overall health of Ontario’s breeding and racing sector. On a personal level, I will miss my friend of forty years and our conversations on critical industry matters.”

The CTHS-ONT will share details of funeral arrangements when they are available.
