“I count myself extremely fortunate to benefit from the amazing experiences Godolphin Flying Start offers. I must extend my immense gratitude to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed for his incredible philanthropy. To have the opportunity to travel around the world learning from leaders in the thoroughbred racing industry is truly life-changing. With racing jurisdictions, the world over facing new challenges, the opportunity to see these and the different methods of overcoming them, will provide a remarkable perspective from which to develop one’s world view.”
