My name is Charlie King, I’m 22 and from New Zealand. It is a privilege to be a trainee on Godolphin Flying Start. Growing up on the family’s stud Brighthill Farm I became passionate about the thoroughbred industry. After completing a Degree in Economics and Finance I worked various yearling sales in Australasia and took the opportunity to work on the ground for Jamie Richard’s Te Akau Racing Stable. I am doing the Godolphin Flying Start as it will prepare me with the global mindset required to be an influential participant in the thoroughbred industry.
