Last time I heard he was being sued for the return of a mere million quid ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ that was some six months ago ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ not a lot seems to have changed for him by the looks of things.
Ramsden seems to have the unique ability of making large amounts of people give him money.
Following his prison sentence and bankruptcy, he reappeared investing in various low-cap technology companies who’s share prices subsequently headed north – if only briefly. Was this based on his previous financial acumen, which included p*ssing away 150 million in a few months?
He always seems capable of scraping together a few ‘mill’ at short notice yet seems to have all the financial ability of Nick Leeson.
I was watching the repeats of the 1990’s Grand Nationals on RUK yesterday and after watching 1996 I was thinking what happened to Encore Un Peu. He ran a great race behind Rough Quest but I can’t remember hearing too much about him afterwards.
There was very little else to see or hear of him after that effort, Pat. He made his seasonal reappearance in the following year’s Racing Post Chase, finished a 38l – and very, very lame – fifth to Mudahim, and never raced again.
The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.
