“I’m extremely grateful to be offered a position on Godolphin Flying Start for the next two years. It’s an incredible opportunity to learn from the most knowledgeable people in the industry, and it’s all made possible by the generosity and vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed. I’m excited to build on my current knowledge of horse racing, and also develop new insights and ideas about thoroughbreds, all whilst undertaking invaluable leadership and management training. By learning about the sport and its different aspects at such a global level, I hope to be a part of the next generation to take the thoroughbred industry to further success. My other interests include various sports, outdoor travel and writing poetry.”
