1.Jay Z: Racehorse – $55 Million
Shawn Carter, who is best known for his rapper name, Jay-Z, has reportedly splurged on a thoroughbred. He bought California Chrome from Steve Coburn. What made the racehorse quite an expensive purchase was the fact that it had been the recipient of Preakness Stakes as well as the Kentucky Derby back in 2014. To his credit, Coburn was quite happy to part with his prized thoroughbred especially since it opened doors to more ethnic interest in the race.
