Estimated to be worth up to £9.5billion, the Aga Khan lives a life even multi-millionaires can only dream of.

That vast wealthmuch of which is used for philanthropic purposeshas also allowed him to indulge in, among many other things, his love of racing.

The owner of infamous racehorse Shergar, he is one of the world’s most successful racing magnates and even splashed £2.2m on the restoration of what has been labelled ‘the most luxurious stables ever built’.

Based in Chantilly in northern France, the yard was originally constructed by an 18th century French prince who believed he would be reincarnated as a horse.

Cette, as far as we know, never happened and the property fell into a state of disrepair before the Aga Khan stepped in.

Maintenant, towering over the grounds is a jaw-dropping chateau, enough room in the stables for 250 horses and a sign welcoming the public to look around.

LEE WESTWOOD a gagné environ 50 millions de livres sterling au cours de sa carrière sur le terrain de golf, spending more than £2m on this was a mere drop in the ocean compared to the £200m the 84-year-old is said to have spent on his superyacht.

Named The Alamshar after one of his horses, the vessel was commissioned in the 1990s with the objective of being the fastest in the world.

£200M YACHT NAMED AFTER HORSE

A stunning 174ft palace on the seas, the yacht was beset by ‘challengingconstruction issues and wasn’t actually finished until 2014.

Even then it fell short of its target of being able to travel 70 nœuds (80mi/h), maxing out at 45 nœuds (51.7mi/h).

Issues aside, the jaw-dropping yacht, which is powered by six gas turbines and 112 water jets, looks incredible out at sea.

WORLD’S BIGGEST PRIVATE JET

It has a range of 7,700 nautical miles, top speed of 710mph, is 111ft long and 104ft wide, including wings.

With properties all over the world that can come in handy when the Aga Khan, a leader to some 15million Ismaili Muslims, wants to jet off to the island he owns in the Bahamas.

Reportedly purchased for just over £73m in 2009, the 349-acre private retreat was once said to have had Hollywood stars Johnny Depp and Nicolas Cage as neighbours on their own nearby private islands too.

But despite the jets and yachts, it hasn’t always been plain sailing.

Encore, the ‘world’s most connected man’ – as he was called in one articlecan rely on a vast network of friends for company.

That has included the Queen and William and Kate, who the Aga Khan was pictured alongside in London in 2019.
