President of Zayat Stables, Justin Zayat, is featured on a CNBC television show today, Jan. 22, at 9:00 p.m. EST. Zayat's horse racing experiences are highlighted on the debut episode of the “Super Rich” premier show. CNBC is billing this show as “secret lives of the super-rich.” The episode airs around young Zayat as a racing tycoon and follows him around at Santa Anita, leading up to the 2013 Breeders’ Cup.
Zayet, 21, acknowledges that he has been blessed with countless opportunities in the racing industry. He is a student at NYU and credits his parents with his foundation in the racing world.
He told the Paulick Report,
I am most looking forward to this being a chance to bring the sport of horse racing to more people. I agreed to do this show because I knew it could bring new owners and fans to the sport that has given me more than I could ever ask for.
In promotional ads for Super Rich, young Zayat is described as the mogul who manages $60 million of Thoroughbreds for his father’s stable and he does it from his dorm.
The Zayats were in Santa Anita Park, Los Angeles, Calif., last year in November in preparation for the Breeders’ Cup and their brilliant Thoroughbred Paynter. They were also campaigning two other greats named Justin Phillip and Fast Bullet.
Zayat Stables continues to be among most prestigious racing ventures operating in North America. Among its illustrious racehorses are the celebrated Paynter, Bodemeister, Eskendereya, and Pioneer of the Nile.
