A legacy with Chin Nam
Dato Tan Chin Nam was a visionary in the real estate and business world. His impact will be felt widespread for many generations. He instilled in the industry that beauty and wonder are crucial to the re-development of property and hospitality infrastructure across the Asia-Pacific.
He is equally well-known in horse racing. Chin Nam forged a strong relationship with Duncan, and together they found and raced horses that were truly legendary. Their successes were more than just sentimental; they directly contributed to the expansion of Think Big Stud.
