Vale Dato Tan Chin Nam

Four-time Melbourne Cup-winning owner, Malaysian businessman and philanthropist Mr Dato Tan Chin Nam, died last night aged 92 in Kuala Lumpur.

Dato's Melbourne Cup winners - Think Big (twice), Saintly and Viewed - were all trained by his long-time friend, the late Bart Cummings, who also prepared his dual Cox Plate winner So You Think.

The pair raced horses together for more than 30 years.

Dato's bloodstock manager, Duncan Ramage, said: "Dato was an enormously successful businessman, he created a dynasty and leaves behind an extensive family to continue his legacy of work and life.

"Buildings he has created adorn many cities in the world and will remain as monuments to the great man.

"He was, of course, a very successful racehorse owner and passes away on the eve of his beloved Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup races.

"He leaves behind numerous horses and a stud farm in his memory. He was an unheralded philanthropist and not least of all he was a friend."

His last winner was at Royal Randwick (Kensington Track) on Wednesday when the Anthony/Edward Cummings-trained Sky Boy won with ease.
