Never Say Die

The success of American runners in Europe in the late-1960s and early-1970s served as an advertisement for the American bloodstock market and attracted buyers from around the world to Thoroughbred auctions in Kentucky, the center of the American breeding industry. Beginning in the mid-1970s, the Kentucky Thoroughbred industry enjoyed an unprecedented period of growth. Fueling the decade-long boom was a rivalry between theMaktoums -- ruling family of Dubai -- and the partners involved with Ireland’s Coolmore Stud as the two groups vied for global supremacy in the increasingly international sport and industry of Thoroughbred racing.
