Former Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford announced Tuesday that he plans to take out a training license and start his own stable later this year.

The Racing Post reports that Crisford, who has been associated with Sheikh Mohammed's worldwide racing operation for the past two decades, will rent stall space from trainer Clive Brittain in Newmarket this fall.

Prior to his post with Darley and Godolphin, Crisford worked as an assistant trainer to John Dunlop and Sir Mark Prescott. He was also a correspondent for the Racing Post.

Crisford is looking forward to his new venture, telling the Post, “I have been lucky enough throughout my career to work with some great people. I have been around top-class horses for the best part of 30 years, having also had the privilege of working closely with Saeed bin Suroor, Andre Fabre and John Gosden.”

“But most of all, I have learned so much about horses from Sheikh Mohammed – without doubt he has been the greatest influence on my career.”
