How did you get into racehorse ownership?
Karl (Thornton) is a neighbour of mine. He had two horses in his yard and asked if I would like to come down and choose one of them. I was lucky, beginners’ luck and I chose Hatch Hall who won three races for us. The other one, chosen by Karl on the day, took a heart attack and died three days later! He’s the one who’s supposed to know about horses.
