Description

'My passion for the thoroughbred is 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 Sir Patrick Hogan is the only man to have been inducted into both the NZ and Australian racing Halls of Fame. A horse breeder with an internationally renowned stable of champions at Cambridge Stud, he is a member of worldwide racing royalty. Of Irish/Kiwi decent, his fortunes were built on an extraordinary partnership with another Irish export - an unlikely champion called Sir tristram (stable name Paddy). Bought from Ireland to New Zealand, this feisty, difficult horse blossomed under his care and proved to be a world class champion racehorse, and a superbly successful breeding sire. His progeny, including one of Australasia's leading sires, Zabeel, have won innumerable Class One races. In a book to rival tears in the Wind, Dianne Haworth has captured the story of an amazing man and his extraordinary horse, within the highly competitive and hard nosed racing industry.
