Bin Salman, Prince Ahmed

▪ 2003
Prince Ahmed ibn Salman ibn ʿAbd al-Aziz 
      Saudi businessman and racehorse owner (b. Nov. 17, 1958, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia—d. July 22, 2002, Riyadh), fulfilled a lifelong goal when his recently purchased horse War Emblem won the 2002 Kentucky Derby; he lost his bid for a Triple Crown, however, when War Emblem captured the Preakness Stakes but failed in the Belmont Stakes. A nephew of Saudi Arabia's King Fahd, Bin Salman became interested in horse racing while attending the University of California, Irvine, in the early 1980s. After assuming the chairmanship of Saudi Research and Marketing in 1989, he turned the company into the largest publishing empire in the Arab world. Bin Salman returned to horse racing in the late 1990s and made many successful acquisitions. Spain, the greatest female money winner in horse-racing history, and Point Given, winner of the Preakness and Belmont in 2001, were two of the exceptional horses in his California-based Thoroughbred Corp.
