The Godolphin story

Every modern thoroughbred can trace its beginnings to Arabia and the three foundation sires, one of which gives Godolphin its name.

Careers at Godolphin

Godolphin spans four continents, from our home in Dubai, to Europe, Australia and America. As one of the largest racing stables and breeding operations in the world, we work tirelessly to take the lead in both the lifetime care of our horses and in the professional development of people working in our industry.

Godolphin trainers Saeed bin Suroor, Charlie Appleby and James Cummings lead a horseracing and breeding operation that involves around 1,000 horses worldwide, all of whom have access to five-star facilities that include private grass and all-weather gallops, swimming pools and equine spas.
