Recent Godolphin Flying Start graduate Amelie Lemercier has been appointed to the role of business development at Al Shaqab's Haras de Bouquetot. Previously a marketing assistant for His Highness The Aga Khan's Studs, Lemercier has also worked for the Wertheimer brothers, Coolmore, Primus, as well as Graham Motion and Elite Sales in America and Newgate and Star Thoroughbreds Down Under. She will be heavily involved in stallion nominations, sales and marketing at Bouquetot.
“We're delighted to welcome Amelie as her dynamism, her skills and her wealth of recent international experiences will be a strong addition to the Bouquetot commercial team,” said Haras de Bouquetot Stud Manager Benoit Jeffroy.
Added Lemercier, who is also a member of the steering committee of French Thoroughbred charity Au-Dela Des Pistes, “In a few years' time only, Haras de Bouquetot has established itself as one of the largest stallions operation in France. Having already had the opportunity to collaborate with the Bouquetot and extended Al Shaqab team members during the Flying Start course, I am looking forward to be working within this operation along with people I admire for their experience and involvement within the industry.”
