Peter McKay, better known as Ras Prince Monolulu, came over to Britain in the early 1900s and was a familiar sight on racecourses (including Newmarket) for much of the twentieth century. With his baggy trousers, colourful jackets, ostrich-feather head-dress he cut an unmistakable figure as he dispensed tips with his trademark cry of "I gotta horse". He became synonymous with racing and was something of a celebrity. Born 1881 in St Croix (then a Danish possession, now part of the American Virgin Islands) he had claimed to be a falasha from Abyssinia. He died in 1965.
