Robert Sangster Summary


Robert Sangster: The First Racing Tycoon by Roy David

A biography of Robert Sangster, a man who forsook the comfortable life in a well-established family empire and with great daring embarked on a long-term gamble to transform a centuries-old British institution: horse-racing, and succeeded in revolutionising the sport on a world-wide scale. The book reveals details of his associations with Vincent O'Brien, Lester Piggott and Pat Eddery. It tells how Sangster challenged the system and replaced it with his own, turning a sport into a multi-million-dollar conmmodity market - one where the inch of a short-head defeat can mean a difference of #10 million. The author's previous books include "Lester Piggott: Downfall of a Legend".
