Product Description

From the Back Cover

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.
