The Sandy Lane hotel in Barbados is part-owned by former Ladbrokes trading director Smith, who lives next door in one of the island’s largest residences. In recent years he has done well from currency trading with the likes of Joe Lewis (qv) and Michael Tabor (qv), though his investment in pub group Mitchells & Butlers lost another £9m last year. Smith made a good return from the Barchester Healthcare nursing home operator and the racehorse owner is worth £561m.
