“I feel privileged to have received a scholarship for the Godolphin Flying Start programme. The course offers an unparalleled education and opportunities to learn and experience all aspects of the global thoroughbred breeding and racing industry first-hand. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed’s dedication to the development of future industry leaders is unrivalled and for that I am grateful. I look forward to travelling and learning with eleven other likeminded individuals over the next two years, whilst ensuring continuous prosperity for the thoroughbred industry. Outside of the industry, I enjoy eventing, hockey, rugby, running and swimming.”
