“I am very grateful to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed for his generosity and for giving me the opportunity to learn the best from the best of the thoroughbred industry worldwide. I think that Godolphin Flying Start is a true privilege and this program will allow me to improve and learn more in my area of expertise. It will give me the chance to gain in-depth understanding of other aspects of this fascinating industry and meet professionals and leaders of the thoroughbred world. Outside of horses, my interests include traveling, history and sports such as eventing, boxing and rugby.”
