“Achieving a position as a trainee in the Godolphin Flying Start program is an incredible honour. I am very grateful to the industry professionals who have mentored me up to this point and look forward to continuing my development into a cultured, well-rounded horsewoman over the next two years. One of my favourite aspects of the Thoroughbred industry is the diverse array of people you get to work with. Flying Start will be a wonderful opportunity to interact and learn from others around the world and be part of a team of trainees who all offer unique backgrounds and perspectives.”
