Godolphin Tighten Purse Strings

Short Heads - our weekly news snippets feature

Racing around the world is bracing for the outcome of a major review of marketing spend by Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin empire that has already resulted in the termination of at least one sponsorship and high profile redundancies.



Officials at the Curragh have been told Darley will no longer back the Irish Oaks, while the launch of this year’s Irish Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards has been deferred pending a decision on the sponsorship

York is believed to have lost Darley funding for the Yorkshire Oaks, while Darley deals in France, principally for Deauville Gr1 prizes the Prix Morny and Prix Jean Romanet, could be under threat.

Race sponsorship in Germany is also set to be impacted.
