Godolphin, the global thoroughbred breeding and horseracing stable founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, is offering fans the opportunity to experience the thrill of racing at Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament (NASST) this Ramadan.
Until June 28, fans have an opportunity to compete as jockeys and race each other on simulators in the Godolphin Jockey Challenge.
Every person who registers for the challenge, will receive a Godolphin cap, which is not available for purchase in stores, and each week the person posting the fastest time on the challenge will win exclusive Godolphin Under Armour kit.
“Being a jockey has to be one of the most exciting jobs there is.” said Godolphin jockey, James Doyle. “The adrenalin of racing around a track at 60 kilometers per hour is incredible. If you have ever wondered what racing for Godolphin is like, or if you have ever wanted to try horseracing, this is your chance so I encourage you all to visit the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament and take part in the Godolphin Jockey Challenge.”
With the UK racing season in full swing during the summer months, the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament will also feature big screens showing the best of the action from Royal Ascot, Britain’s most valuable race meeting, where Team Godolphin will be competing in the famous royal blue silks.
Godolphin’s supporters are being encouraged to show their support for the team by uploading creative images of themselves ‘wearing the blue’ or sharing images which capture the spirit of Dubai and Godolphin to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – using the hashtag: #WearTheBlue and tagging @Godolphin.
Those posting images will automatically enter a competition where one lucky fan will win an all-expenses paid trip to watch Godolphin complete in the UK.
