Dubai International Thoroughbred Internships

The Dubai International Thoroughbred Internships offer a life-changing opportunity to Chinese students.

Places on the programme are awarded to those who have recently graduated, or are about to graduate, from university, and can write and speak English reasonably well.

Candidates will learn about the day-to-day care of horses, gain experience of veterinary medicine and agriculture, and be introduced to the professional business skills needed in the industry — such as marketing, sales, finance, human resources and business administration.

“DITI has not only enriched my practical experience in the global thoroughbred industry, but has also provided a platform for networking with leading industry professionals. I am very grateful that I joined this programme and have further developed myself.”

What have we learned from DITI?

In recent weeks, Alan Delmonte from the Horseracing Betting Levy Board was invited to have a talk with us. He was given a detailed description of the DITI schedule and jokingly told us that he wished he were a young Chinese and had the chance to experience this exceptional programme.

Naming Future Champions

Recently, Darley in Japan asked for name suggestions for this year’s two-year-olds from their staff as it has done for the past few years. DITI’s Team Japan also had the honour of participating in this "contest".

When Ireland met England

We have been to Goffs and Tattersalls Ireland, we have been to the Irish National Stud and various training yards. Naturally, we thought ‘oh, that’s about the size of it!’, until we went to England!
