Description

Roger Sangster- millionaire businessman and the ultimate horsetrader- is the man who took on the world in the highly volatile business of racehorse breeding and won, over and over again... With individual thoroughbred racehorses costing millions of pounds each, the explosion in the bloodstock industry in the 1980s was the ultimate gamble of the decade- symbol of the business euphoria of the times. Tracing the gripping events of how Sangster and his elite Irish racing experts took the world's most prestigious bloodstock auction, the Keeneland Sales in Kentucky, by storm and written with the full co-operation of Sangster himself, 'Horsetrader', is the inside track on a breathtaking bid to corner the thoroughbred market. The shock waves from the spectacular crash that followed are still reverberating throughout the world of the Sport of Kings. "One of the most riveting books about international racing ever published- impressively well-researched, exciting and well-written".'Financial Times' "An excellent book, to be enjoyed not only by betting-shop punters but the city tycoons".Jeffrey Bernard,' Spectator', 'Books of the Year' "The racing book of the year".'Sporting Life'
