“Godolphin Flying start is a phenomenal opportunity for me to live and breathe the Thoroughbred industry at the highest level and whilst traveling to the major Thoroughbred industries in five different countries over two years. The opportunities offered to the 12 trainees annually is second to none and having seen the other graduates develop and progress over the last 14 years, I am really looking forward to my own personal development and career progression. Outside of horses and in my spare time, I enjoy cooking and socializing with friends”
