We often see big celebrity names from different sports getting a piece of the action of a different sport, especially with horse racing since this is one of the most prestigious sports in the world.
In most cases, athletes make a lot of money with their career and they turn out to horse racing since the sport gives them an opportunity to make even more money as an investment. Horse racing has a great ROI since most high-end competitions like the Breeders’ Cup have millions of dollars in prize purses.
In this case, we have Conor McGregor, a UFC champion that everyone knows even if they are not interested in combat sports.
Conor has always been an active person, full of energy and different passions. He always pushes himself to the limit with new mountains to climb, and one of them is horse racing.
Being a true Irishman, his passion for horse racing isn’t that surprising.
