“The Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards highlight the invaluable work of our staff everywhere. Without these skilled and diligent people the racing and breeding industry would be unable to function. To see them honoured in this way is a fitting celebration of their hard work and dedication to the horses and sport which they love. Sheikh Mohammed highlights his awareness of this and shows his appreciation by sponsoring the awards which were instigated by him and which his team organises so well. It is a hugely generous underpinning of this side of the industry, providing a great boost to morale and confidence and is much appreciated by all.”
