The yearling went on to be syndicated the equivalent of an initial public offering for a horse for a then unprecedented $40 million. "The one that I discarded?" says Sheik Mohammed, pretending to struggle to remember the horse's name. "Was it Ballydoyle or something?" he asks Crisford.

The business got a lift from the Irish tax code, which exempts stallion earnings. When Sheik Mohammed decided that he, too, favored the Northern Dancer line, the fight between the Irish and the Arabs was on. By the late 1980s, the Maktoums had clearly gained the upper hand at the sales and on the track. Sangster largely gave up funding purchases, telling a friend, "They have a country behind them, and I have a small business.
