Rac­ing mourns tragic Foxes boss

The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

THE tragic death of Le­ices­ter City’s owner Vichai Sri­vad­dhanaprabha in a he­li­copter crash last Satur­day was felt deeply in the rac­ing world.

He had quickly be­come a pop­u­lar fig­ure on the race­course in this coun­try, host­ing guests at boxes at As­cot and other meet­ings. From mod­est be­gin­nings buy­ing horses at auc­tion af­ter sell­ing races at Le­ices­ter he steadily built up a pow­er­ful team to run in name of King Power Rac­ing. Sri­vad­dhanaprabha had sev­eral train­ers in­clud­ing An­drew Bald­ing, Richard Han­non, Ralph Beckett and Paul Cole. Bald­ing, who trained a team of 50 for him, pro­vided his big­gest suc­cesses with the three time Group 2 win­ner Beat The Bank.
