For 30 years until his death in a road accident in 1960, the flaboyant Prinece Aly Khan used his horse sense on behalf of himself and his father, the late Aga Khan III. The end result was the finest international racing stable in history. So astute was his judgment of horses that on four occasions he bought the long-shot winners of major stakes races just months before their victories. Aly Khan was a gentleman jockey and holds one of the most impressive amateur racing records of all time.
