Tom McGinty, Managing Director of Arc Hill Bloodstock, has over 25 years of business and hands-on experience in the racing and breeding sectors within the international thoroughbred industry.

Tom started out in 1986 working for the very successful trainer Mr Leo O’Brien who is based in West Hempstead, New York. Working his way up the ranks, Tom soon became assistant trainer. Many famous horses were trained at Mr O’Brien’s stables including the wonder filly “Yanks Music” who won 4 group ones as a 3-year-old, “Fourstars Allstar”, the first and only American-based racehorse to capture a European classic by winning the Irish 2000 Guineas, as well as “Fourstardave” and “Irish Linnet”, both group winners.

Closer to home, Tom worked in the Mare division at Cooladoon Stud in Cork. From this experience, Tom developed strong relationships with many agents, breeders, trainers and experienced industry participants worldwide.
