Team USA's Graduation blog

We can’t believe we are at the end of our 10-month Dubai International Thoroughbred Internship (DITI) journey. While the excitement upon our arrival in Lexington, the horse capital of the world, seems just like yesterday, we are already on our way back home, saying goodbye to this amazing adventure.

Most of the DITI interns did not have much exposure to horses before the program. A year at DITI has allowed us to see every perspective of the thoroughbred and horse racing industry. The amazing prices at the sales, the sadness of our favorite horse missing the win by a nose, the happiness of seeing a new-born foal in the foaling barn… all are magic experiences we never had before.

At the beginning of the program, we went to Keeneland for the biggest yearling sale in the world – the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. It was the first time for us to see the thoroughbred industry as a multi-billion dollar industry. Then we started working at Dubai Millennium farm, home to all the foals in Darley America. We learned all the basic skills such as grooming and picking the hoof. Working there enabled us to see how a most careful attitude must be applied when it comes to caring for horses.

The trip to Dubai was definitely the highlight of the program. All interns from five different countries met in Dubai, sharing with each other all their experiences. Jumeirah hotel, the Palm Beach and the Burj Kalifha were the desert miracles that amazed us all.

The breeding season in the northern hemisphere started in January. The tiredness of the night watch was quickly taken over by the joy of witnessing the first foal born. Seeing the foals grow from babies to teenagers under our care was the happiest time for all of us.

Time flies. How we wished the time could stop at this moment and let us see the foals we delivered and the racetrack at 5 am in the morning. For most of us, DITI is the sweetest dream that will be cherished forever.
