The client

Darley is one of the world’s biggest and most prestigious breeding businesses. Founded by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai, it currently stands stallions in seven countries around the world. Its headquarters is at Dalham Hall Stud, Newmarket – the historic and internationally renowned home of horseracing.

The challenge

CPL was appointed to handle Darley’s global marketing content. It was crucial to Darley that CPL was able to: achieve a very quick turnaround of projects, particularly in light of race results; offer a one-stop shop for a range of services, such as advert design, outdoor marketing, digital design and media buying; deliver marketing material to the highest quality and always on time; break away from the traditional project-management model to meet fast-changing needs, often at short notice.

The solution

CPL created a bespoke account team with market-leading skills to work with Darley on a daily basis to deliver global content marketing. Supported by a team of print experts, digital designers and developers, we create content to inspire and educate existing and potential clients about the studs' stallions. 

We are responsible for producing all of Darley’s marketing content. We run its international websites; carry out photo-shoots all over the world; design for print and digital; print and distribute a wide range of marketing and promotional material; design and build websites; and create adverts for newspapers, magazines and websites, and manage media buying.

The results


of work recognised through several industry awards

Wider range

of services delivered by CPL than ever before


in video work and digital projects

We couldn’t be more pleased with the wonderful team at CPL. They always go above and beyond and still deliver high-quality work on a daily basis, whatever we throw at them.

As Darley has grown – particularly in the delivery of digital marketing – CPL has been with us every step of the way; always happy to try new things on our behalf.
