Medina Spirit Horse Owner

Now people want to know more about Medina Spirit and the person who owns the winning horse.

Zedan founded Lexington-based Zedan Racing Stables five years back and now he has a Kentucky Derby winner in Medina Spirit. He stated that being victorious in the Derby was a dream realized, shortly after his Bob Baffert-trained, 3-year-old won the 147th edition of the Run for the Roses at Churchill Downs.

“Naturally it was the Kentucky Derby, right? That’s the show. That’s what Bob said — that’s the show, that’s why we are here. I feel blessed, honored and humbled. I’ve rehearsed this speech in the shower and on the treadmill. Never thought I was going to do it, but here I am,” Zedan said before thanking his family.

Zedan Racing Stables tweeted, “Let’s celebrate our little horse that could — MEDINA SPIRIT made it into the record books as the 147th @kentuckyderby winner So humbled and grateful to have a #KyDerby winner & to help Baffert make history – What a fighter #DerbyDreams @ljlmvel for the ride!

Amr Zedan Worth

The 47-year-old California-born entrepreneur chairs a family-owned group of businesses based in Saudi Arabia.

“When I was young, I always loved sports in general, and I always loved horses as well,” Zedan said. “I was exposed to various sports, and polo was one of the sports I gravitated toward because it combined the ball and the horse. I watched a few movies that featured polo. ‘Pretty Woman’ was one of those movies, and I was captivated by it when I was a kid. I picked up the sport in the late 90s and early 2000s in Dubai and London, and the rest was history.”

“I’ve always been fascinated with horses, so it was just a natural progression. I do have my stables, Zedan Racin and my trainer is the Hall of Fame, six-time Kentucky Derby winner and two-time Triple Crown winner Bob Baffert. Bob needs no introduction, so I’m very privileged to work with him. We have a couple of horses that have been successful and a few that we hope will be successful, one of which was is a filly, Princess Nour, who just retired due to injury,” he added.

Amr Zedan Net Worth

While Bob Baffert is the man who trained Medina Spirit for the 2021 Derby, the horse is owned by Amr Zedan.

It’s unclear exactly how much Amr Zedan is worth. However, it’s likely that he has a net worth of millions of dollars. He is a CEO, runs multiple businesses and is also likely to have even further success in the horse racing sector.

It’s clear that Amr is a businessman who knows what he’s doing as the horse who came out on top at the 2021 Kentucky Derby was bought for just $35,000 at two years old. When Medina Spirit was a yearling, the horse was up for sale for a mere $1,000.

Amr Zedan Wife

Amr is married to 38-year-old Princess Noor bint Asem. The couple tied the knot in Jordan in 2018 and together have two sons Talal and Abdullah. Talal was born in 2019 while Abdullah was born in 2020. Amr’s wife can be found on Instagram, too, @noorbintasem.

Kentucky Derby Winner

Medina Spirit has never finished worse than second in its six career starts and two of his three losses came to Life Is Good, who likely would have been the Derby favorite had he not been injured. “He doesn’t know how much he cost,” Baffert said, “but what a little racehorse.”

Medina Spirit led all the way and ran one and a quarter miles in 2:01.02. Sent off at 12-1 odds, he paid $26.20, $12 and $7.60.

Now, according to Equibase, Medina Spirit’s Kentucky Derby win earned a huge $2,175,200.
