Masar Godolphin is an academic and operational based scholarship under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum for young Emirati horse enthusiasts to travel to the UK and Ireland to undergo a course in the thoroughbred industry.

Commenting on the impact of Masar Godolphin, Hugh Anderson, Managing Director for Godolphin in the UK and Dubai, said: “The love of horses is part of the DNA of Dubai and this was reflected in the large number outstanding applications we received from UAE nationals who wanted to immerse themselves in the world of thoroughbred horse breeding and racing.”
