John Magnier

Owner Profile

John Magnier
John Magnier was born and bred in Fermoy, County Cork Ireland, and is considered to be one of the world's foremost thoroughbred stud owners. A billionaire today, Magnier was the main driving force behind the world renowned multi-national racehorse breeding operation, Coolmore Stud, which currently has operations all over the globe.

In fact, with its headquarters at Fethard in County Tipperary, Coolmore Stud is acknowledged to be the world's largest and arguably best stallion breeding operations and thoroughbred nurseries. Magnier got his start in the thoroughbred breeding business from a very early age after being forced to drop out of school at the age of 15 following the death of his father.

He took over his family farm and soon earned a reputation as something of a natural stallion master. He went on to marry Susan O'Brien, the daughter of Coolmore Stud partner and pre-eminent trainer Vincent O'Brien. Later Magnier acquired a large share of Coolmore Stud and is widely credited with building the Irish thoroughbred breeding operation into the giant it is today.
John Magnier
John Magnier has proved to be a canny businessman and investor in areas other than those involving horses, which includes his 28.89 percent stake in the world famous and highly profitable English football club, Manchester United, which he sold in 2005. With homes in Ireland, Switzerland and Barbados, John Magnier is estimated to be worth over 2 billion Euros making him one of Europe's wealthiest people.
