“During my time on Godolphin Flying Start I have seen my understanding of the international thoroughbred industry and its interconnectedness improve dramatically. However, as well as the development of my horsemanship, the growth of my interpersonal and leadership skills, as well as self-awareness have been some of the more significant learning outcomes from the programme. The course has exceeded my expectations at every turn. Upon graduating from Godolphin Flying Start, I will return to Lexington, Kentucky and assist in the running of my family’s Denali Stud alongside my father.”
