Opportunity The vision for Darley Flying Start is to produce committed thoroughbred industry leaders, working in existing and emerging racing nations, contributing to the long term success of the industry. There is no greater opportunity in the world of horseracing and breeding to gain the necessary skills and knowledge to develop and manage a successful business. Trainees' innate leadership qualities are developed through communications, personal awareness and leadership training as well as leadership opportunities throughout the program. The current and relevant content of lectures and visits ensure that trainees are at the leading edge of thoroughbred industry research, innovation, technology and development. Trainees work hands on with horses at the world's leading studs and stables, developing best practice horsemanship and teamwork with the staff at each location. Accreditation by the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School leads to a 30 ECTS credit Graduate Certificate in Management (Thoroughbred Industry). "The Darley Flying Start program has made a tremendous impact on the equine community across the globe. It not only provides sharp,enthusiastic young people who love our business an avenue to learn, it graduates future leaders in our industry. That is why I have two of them working and growing at WinStar Farm." Elliott Walden, CEO, WinStar Farm, Lexington, Kentucky
