New and fully updated edition of the classic biography of Sir Patrick Hogan and his legendary Camrbidge Stud, home of champion thoroughbreds Sir Tristram and Zabeel. 'My passion for the thoroughbred i... s a legacy passed down to me by my Irish father, Tom Hogan. The Irish possess a rare affinity with the thoroughbred - there aren't many Irishmen who don't like a horse.' - Sir Patrick Hogan When Cambridge Stud owner and master bloodstock breeder Sir Patrick Hogan went against expert advice and bought the young Irish stallion Sir Tristram sight-unseen, he had no idea of the journey he was about to embark on. Known for his vile temper, Sir Tristram nonetheless possessed a mouthwatering pedigree. After a disastrous introduction to the stallion's shareholders, an emotional Patrick made a promise to the horse he had given the stable-name of Paddy. Regardless of what happened from that point on, the stallion would spend the rest of his life being cared for at Cambridge Stud. In time, Paddy went on to repay the promise in full, and his success as a sire of champions would help to put Cambridge Stud on the map, making it arguably the most successful bloodstock showcase in the history of the Australasian thoroughbred industry. As well as Sir Tristram the stud was also home to his incomparable son and heir Zabeel, and to generations of superb mares, broodmares and yearlings. Throughout his glittering career, Sir Patrick has brought an enduring passion to the industry he has served so well, and is credited with doing more than anyone else to putting New Zealand on the international map for thoroughbred breeding. He is the only person to have been inducted into both the New Zealand and Australian Racing Halls of Fame. Champion racehorses, the great characters of the industry, royalty, celebrities, dignitaries and heads of state are all present in this enthralling story of a man, a horse and a dream to be the best, through the highs and lows of tragedy and triumph, on and off the track. This edition is fully updated to include Zabeel's golden years at Cambridge Stud and Sir Patrick's many accomplishments since publication of the original book in 2007.
