Kiwi horse racing and thoroughbred breeding icon Sir Patrick Hogan has died, aged 83.

Sir Patrick owned the world renowned Cambridge Stud for decades and was responsible for bringing the likes of champion horses Sir Tristram and Zabeel to New Zealand.

He established New Zealand’s leading breeding ground for thoroughbred stallions in 1976, which was the leading vendor at the Karaka Yearling Sales for 31-years straight.

In 2002, Sir Patrick was knighted for services to thoroughbred racing.

Cause of death is yet to be confirmed.
