“Boot, saddle, to horse,
and away!”

Robert Browning


From dream to reality

Manhattanite Jerry Brody was a highly successful entrepreneur and respected businessman, celebrated for acquiring and transforming New York City’s Oyster Bar and Gallagher’s Steakhouse into world-renowned landmarks. Jerry and his wife, Marlene, were attracted to nearby pastoral Columbia County, bought their first 100 acres of land, and dreamt of running their very own successful, world-class farm.

An enthusiastic novice, Jerry took his first step as a “gentleman farmer” in 1976 when he started his Angus operation by purchasing “Miss Northern K,” a Calf Champion Heifer which he and Marlene renamed “Manhattan Gal.” That first year the Brody’s "gal" went on to become the breed’s Triple Crown Winner–quickly placing Gallagher’s Angus Farm at the forefront of the cattle industry.

With similar passion, the Brodys bought their first thoroughbred horse in 1978, and were destined to achieve greatness in the racing and breeding business. With the creation of Gallagher’s Stud, the couple visited farms throughout Europe and the U.S. before selecting the stallions for their roster. Their thorough research and diligence paid off, resulting in thoroughbreds that competed–and won–at the highest international levels, as well as a broodmare program that has evolved into one of the very best in the nation. In fact, less than 10 years after they began their stud operation, the Brody’s were named New York’s Outstanding Breeder of the Year.

Jerry Brody passed away in 2001 at the age of 78, leaving a legacy of achievement as businessman, farmer, and gentleman. His wife, Marlene, continues to run the farm, ably assisted by manager Mallory Mort, Annie Jardine, Bert and Stephanie

Poucher and Mike Ransford. And today, more than forty years later, Gallagher’s Stud is committed to continuing its race toward greatness.

If success is measured by professionalism, integrity, and a commitment to breeding, raising, selling, and racing excellent athletes, Gallagher’s Stud is the undisputed winner. We hope to have the opportunity to race toward greatness with you. The odds are strong that together we would make a winning combination.
