25 year old Lucy Blake comes from Co. Laois, Ireland. She graduated with a Bachelor of Civil Law and a minor in Economics from University College Dublin in May 2017. Before commencing Godolphin Flying Start Lucy worked as a stud hand in Castletown Stud, Co. Cork and Tipper House Stud, Co. Kildare. She also completed the Irish National Stud Thoroughbred Breeding Course in July 2018.
“Godolphin Flying Start is a fantastic opportunity for me to work alongside and learn from the very best people in the Thoroughbred and Racing industry. The program is incomparable to any other and offers us as trainees the most incredible chance to be in the industry at the highest level in five of the most influential racing jurisdictions across the world over the two year period. I am really looking forward to developing my depth of knowledge for racing in each of these destinations. Outside of horses I am interested in photography, travelling, hiking and outdoor sports.”
