Top Race Horse Owners
Who are the world's biggest racehorse owners?
How can you recognize them the next time you see them at a racetrack and
touch them up for a small loan, or simply touch them and hope some of that
horse racing luck is transferred? We have all the leading horseracing owner
biographies right here, all with the necessary background detail to help you
make that quality first impression, and we've also included photos.
We've covered the monster horse racing stables
like Godolphin and Coolmore, as well as the leading syndicates like Team
Valor, and individual owners who dominate in their home countries like the
stately dowager Bridget Oppenheimer (Mrs O) and Dato' Tan Chin Nam, who
together with the legendary trainer Bart Cummings, continues to exert a huge
influence on Australian horse racing.
Between them these top owners have won most of
the major horse races around the world and they are the lifeblood of the
world's greatest sport, which we are so fortunate to cover on a daily basis.
So the next time you place a horse racing bet on a big race like the
Breeders Cup Classic or the Epsom Derby check your race card to see how many
of the leading owners below are represented - you'll probably be shocked at
how ubiquitious their presence is in the big races.
