Godolphin Racing

Owner Profile

Godolphin Racing
Godolphin Racing Inc was founded in 1994 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai and vice-president of the United Arab Emirates. Sheikh Mohammed also owns the world renowned thoroughbred breeding operation, Darley Stable.

Sheikh Mohammed named Godolphin Racing after the handsome 18th century Arabian stallion, Godolphin, who is widely acknowledged as being one of the major contributors to the modern thoroughbred bloodstock race horse that is so prized around the world today.

Godolphin Racing has fully-fledged horse racing stables and operations in both Dubai and Newmarket, England. To escape the cold weather, Godolphin thoroughbreds spend their winters in the desert heat of Dubai and are then transported to England in the summer months.
Godolphin's first major Gr 1 triumph came in 1994 when 3-year-old filly Balanchine - ridden by Frankie Dettori - won the prestigious Oaks at Epsom Downs. Since then Godolphin Racing has yielded some of the best thoroughbreds in the international horse racing scene. Since it was founded, Godolphin Racing has won 145 Gr 1 races with 77 individual thoroughbred race horses.
