“It is a great honour to be selected for the Godolphin Flying Start scholarship. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed is giving us a life changing opportunity to learn from the best leaders and horsemen in the Thoroughbred industry and to discover amazing places and facilities around the world. It will be a significant asset for me going forwards and will give me the best chance to pursue my desired career. Outside of racing, I enjoy everything nature and animals related, including outdoor activities such as hiking and travelling.”
