My name is Annabel Adams, from Canterbury, New Zealand. I completed a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Agriculture at Lincoln University while working for Tony and Lyn Prendergast. Since graduating, I have acted as a travelling foreman for the stable of Stephen Autridge and Kris Shailer at Valachi Racing. To be accepted on Godolphin Flying Start reflects a lot of hard work and dedication. It is an exceptionally unique opportunity that will allow me to significantly develop my knowledge and skills of all facets of the industry on a global scale. I look forward to being able to travel, meet and learn from many inspiring individuals to further foster my leadership and horsemanship ability. The personal and professional skills I will attain during the next two years will be of advantage when working towards my own training career.
