Famous people in horse-racing and breeding

Well, we all know it's not about fame. During decaded, there were just some very special people with an extraordinary ability to understand thoroughbreds... whether it was breeding them, training them or riding them. We all know the names, but it's so easy to forget what these great people have achieved...

We would like to remember them and their outstanding work, but we don't want to just re-write other people's words. So if you're expecting full, long, rich in details personal biography, you'll probably be disappointed.

We decided to take a slightly different approach instead.
