Godolphin Flying Start Alumni are invited to our 10 year reunion celebrations at Kildangan Stud. It will take place on Sunday 30th June 2013, Irish Derby weekend! To mark the occasion of its first ten years and the success of its graduates, Godolphin Flying Start is hosting a reunion party coinciding with the graduation of the 2011 – 2013 trainees. The day kicks off with a stallion parade and breakfast at Kildangan with Shamardal, Helmet, Ravens Pass, Teofilo and many others on show, followed by racing at the Curragh. The Sunday card includes the featured Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes which has been won in the past 10 years by super fillies like Alexander Goldrun and Dar Re Mi. The graduating class, Godolphin Flying Start alumni and a number of international thoroughbred industry leaders will then return to Kildangan House for a reception and the formal graduation ceremony, followed by the reunion party held on the beautiful lawn in front of the house. Many graduates are already planning their travel and accommodations for this very special event. Invitations and the schedule for the day as well as a list of local accommodation will be sent to all graduates in April.
94 alumni of the program are now working in 20 countries on 5 continents, creating a network of thoroughbred professionals that will continuously strengthen the racing and breeding industries. Following the 2013 graduation there will be over 100 graduates working in the thoroughbred business.
