New Zealand-born Vicky was educated at Roncalli College, Timaru, and graduated from the Univerity of Otago with a Bachelor of Science degree in Ecology and Zoology. Stints at White Robe Lodge and Cambridge Stud were followed by 18 months on the Graduate Development Programme of the New Zealand Racing Board.

Her Darley Flying Start traineeship included work placements with Arrowfield, US-based pedigree consultant Byron Rogers, Ascot racecourse in England, and Dubai trainer Erwan Charpy.

There are now 82 graduates of the Darley Flying Start programme working in thoroughbred breeding & racing around the world – already a tremendous legacy of Sheikh Mohammed’s vision to recruit and develop the industry’s future leaders.
