Godolphin crowned 2015 UK champion flat owner


Godolphin have collected the ultimate owners' accolade by winning the championship for the 2015 British Flat season. It is the 10th time that Godolphin have picked up the title. The Stable, which is owned by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, accumulated most prize money in the racing year just ended, achieving a level of consistency across a range of classes and categories and a variety of tracks. The famous royal blue colours were regularly seen in the winner's enclosure during the early months on all-weather tracks, but the impressive strike rate continued on Turf for the remainder of the year. Godolphin won 160 races in Britain in 2015 for prize money totalling £3,909,023. Bloodstock Advisor, John Ferguson, spoke of an incredible team effort being responsible for the success: "Winning the owners' championship means a huge amount for Godolphin," Ferguson said. "A huge amount of time and effort have gone into making this operation a success. "We have runners all around the world, not only in the UK, but in Dubai, Europe, Australia and the United States. We are a worldwide operation. It is a great team, both human and equine, and I am very proud to be a part of it."
