My name is Orlaith Nangle, and I am from Dublin, Ireland. I studied Equine Business in Maynooth University, during which I completed a marketing internship at Horse Racing Ireland. I then gathered experience in the bloodstock side of the industry, spending a year and a half working for Coolmore in Kentucky and doing the National Stud Diploma Course. I subsequently worked for the renowned horseman Paul McCartan at Ballyphilip Stud. I am very grateful for the enormous opportunity presented to me by Godolphin Flying Start through this scholarship and I look forward to increasing my knowledge and experience within the many different facets of the global thoroughbred industry over the next eighteen months. I have no doubt that the skills I gain and the people I meet during the course will stand to me throughout the rest of my career.
