Frank Stronach


Owner Profile

Frank Stronach
Frank H. Stronach was born in 1932 in a small town in Austria to a working class family. At 22 he moved to Montreal in Canada where two years later he started his own manufacturing business. Over the years he built the business into Magna International Ltd, a highly successful auto supplier.

Along the way, Frank Stronach developed a passion for thoroughbred horseracing and founded Magna Entertainment Corporation (MEC). MEC owns and operates some of the most successful horseracing venues in Austria and the United States, including Santa Anita Park, Gulfstream Park, Pimlico Race Course, Laurel Park, Golden Gate Fields, Thistledown, and Portland Meadows.

The company operates off-track betting facilities as well as a national account wagering operation called XpressBet. Via XpressBet, horseracing fans can wager telephonically or via the Internet on races at more than 100 North American horse racing venues as well as on races in South Africa, Australia and Dubai.

MEC also owns a host of successful thoroughbreds. One of the most famous of these is Glorious Song who in 1980 was awarded the coveted Sovereign Award for Canadian Horse of the Year.

Frank Stronach
Stronach's horses have won some of the world's major races including the Queen's Plate, the Belmont Stakes, the Preakness Stakes and the Breeders' Cup Classic. A few years ago Stronach established a company called Adena Springs Farms which owns horse breeding operations farms in Kentucky, Florida and in Canada.
