Probably of interest to the slightly older generation here that were into horses in the early 80s and know of him, Ramsden is on the Simon Nott interview this week, starting with his early days in the city in the 70s and how he made his millions and got into horseracing:

I spoke to Simon earlier this week and he suggested this interview would be interesting. Bit of a character is Terry.

A worthwhile watch but clearly Tel was not gonna discuss his epic downfall, not an interview but a presentation.

I vaguely remember him. Was he the owner that had a major fallout with a sports journalist in the 80's who claimed he wasn't paying his trainers' bills, and retaliated by pulling out all his horses from British stables?

Fantastic character. I remember him owning Walsall FC too.

I read an article about him not so long ago. He was pretty pissed off at all his old friends ditching him on his release from prison, and was especially angry at being ignored by his wife and son, Jake. When the jockey club cleared him to own horses again, he bought a 2 year-old and named it Jake the Snake......after his son who had rejected him

Wasn't there a 'scandal' in 1995 involving a horse he owned called Top Cees which ran in the 1995 'Swaffam' handcap? There was a court case about it.

Didn't know he was the owner but that was the one Kieren Fallon was told "wasn't supposed to win". :)

No disrespect to Mr Ramsden, but he does look like the sort of character that could make and lose a lot!

Top Cees ran in the Sangster colours, T.Ramsden knew Sangster well, so maybe there was some sort of collab.
