My name is Charlie King, I’m a 23 year old from Cambridge, New Zealand. It is a privilege to represent myself and my fellow trainees whilst on the Godolphin Flying Start. Growing up on the family’s stud Brighthill Farm I became passionate about the New Zealand thoroughbred industry and wanted to expend my knowledge internationally. 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. Godolphin Flying Start provides the pre-eminent opportunity to develop the global mindset required to have influence in the future of the thoroughbred industry.
