A Man Of Influence
Shergar’s owner wasn’t an ordinary breeder. Shergar belonged to Prince Shah Karim Al Hussaini, Aga Khan IV, and Imam of Nizari Ismailism. Aga Khan didn’t want a breeding stud— he wanted a racehorse.
Shergar was a thoroughbred of impressive breeding. He had the potential to do really well as a racehorse. At the request of Aga Khan, Shergar was brought to England to begin his training. Aga Khan was determined to see his horse succeed.
