He has leased his well-bred horse “Bronzino” for TOAST Trust No. 1. Dato Tan is well known in the Australian racing industry. He has been highly successful in the Melbourne Cup races with 3 wins from “Think Big” and “Saintly”. This accomplishment is one that is rarely achievable.  Both horses were trained by trainer Bart Cummings.
