Michael Tabor

Owner Profile

Michael Tabor
Michael Tabor is a successful businessman and prominent thoroughbred racehorse from the United Kingdom. Born in 1941 in London, Tabor soon proved to be a natural entrepreneur and went on to own a chain of successful and lucrative sports betting shops across England (Arthur Prince). He started with 2 shops, that he bought from their bankrupt owner. He used his sizeable income to fund his burgeoning love for horseracing to great effect.

By the time he sold his sports betting business in 2003 for a whopping 50-million dollars, he had increased his number of Arthur Prince betting shops to 114, and already notched up some notable successes in the horseracing world besides. These included victories in the top American horse races the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes in 1995 with his outstanding stallion, Thunder Gulch, who went on to win the Eclipse Award the same year.

During his involvement in horseracing, Tabor formed a long partnership with Susan Magnier, the wife of Coolmore Stud owner John Magnier.
