Barzalona: It’s an honour to join Godolphin

'Honour to join Godolphin'


How did the move to Godolphin come about?

The stable contacted me with an offer to go and join them and I didn’t take too long to think about it. This is a wonderful opportunity for me and I’ll being doing what I can to make the most of it.

How did you feel about it?

I was thrilled and honoured to receive an offer from Godolphin.

Is it a dream come true for you to be joining such a big stable at such a young age?

It goes without saying that it’s a dream for any young jockey learning the ropes to join a prestigious stable like this.

What can you tell us about your two stablemates-to-be?

Frankie Dettori needs no introduction. He’s won so many big races for the stable and he’s got a terrific career record. He’s an absolute genius. I know Silvestre [de Souza] too and he’s a very good jockey. I can’t wait to work with them both.

How’s the Dubai meeting going?

It’ll soon be finished. It’s the second time I’ve taken part here and it’s gone pretty well for Godolphin, who’ve won some big races.

What are your goals for this year?

I’m going to try and impress my trainers from the start and win a couple of big races too. I don’t see why I can’t.
