Godolphin, the global thoroughbred breeding and horseracing team founded by Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has launched a campaign to find eight ambitious Emiratis to become part of its 2018 Masar programme.

Masar Godolphin is an academic and experiential scholarship that will provide UAE nationals with a unique opportunity to embrace their equestrian heritage with the aim of becoming the business leaders of the future.

Trainees will be given the opportunity to visit some of the UK’s leading sporting organisations to help develop their leadership, management and teamwork skills.

The programme will be offered to Emirati men and women, aged between 20 and 30, who demonstrate a genuine passion for equestrianism, and who have the ambition to develop both personally and professionally.

Hugh Anderson, managing director for Godolphin in the UK and Dubai, said: “The course will run over 10 months, in Dubai, the United Kingdom and Ireland, and include a mix of both academic and practical modules, plus placements with some of the world’s most prestigious equestrian organisations. Masar Godolphin is a very special programme which represents yet another demonstration of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed’s enduring passion for horse breeding and racing, and his continued commitment to the creation of a sustainable future for both the industry and the individuals involved in it”.

Ali Al Ali, Head of Masar Godolphin, added: “Godolphin has always been Dubai’s Home Team, and as an Emirati I could not be prouder to help launch the search for eight outstanding and ambitious, young Emirati men and women to become part of the 2018 Masar programme.  The love of horses is in the DNA of Dubai and this is an extremely exciting time to be involved in thoroughbred horse breeding and racing and thanks to the on-going support and guidance of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, we are privileged to be able to extend this opportunity to the next generation of Emiratis”.
