FOOTBALL super agent Kia Joorabchian is proving he has an eye for top talent on and off the pitch.
The man who looks after the likes of Arsenal stars Willian and David Luiz has netted a tidy profit from his string of racehorses.
And Joorabchian, 49, was celebrating another winner on Sunday after The Hulk scored at Southwell – his second win in three starts.

The George Boughey-trained 7-4 shot won by two lengths from 40-1 Farhhsical in a 5f sprint on the sand.
First place netted owners £3,428 – a far cry from the multi-million mega deals he is used to sealing.
But still it is a nice little sum for the three-year-old bay gelding who runs under the banner of Amo Racing Limited.
According to Racing Post figures, Amo Racing have earned £387,757 in the last five seasons.
And one of those proving highly successful is Babajan.
The three-year-old has won his last two races, going off a 6-4 favourite in the most recent victory in Newcastle at the end of last month.
Babajan's career earnings have surpassed the £10,000 mark and a lot more is expected from him.
An appearance at Ascot could one day be on the cards.
Joorabchian swapped the likes of the Emirates and the Nou Camp in 2019 when he watched his horse Maxi Boy run in the Coventry Stakes.
First place there was a whopping £85,000 – so it shows the potential of Joorabchian's growing stable.
And he is not afraid to splash some cash on top older horses too, who are capable of breeding winners.
Joorabchian was involved in a £2million bidding war last December over Beach Frolic.
The mother of superstar horse Palace Pier was in such high demand that the auction started at a whopping £1m.
As luck would have it, the son of ex-Manchester United shareholder John Magnier won the bidding.
But with a crop of youngsters with big futures, Joorabchian could end up with the golden foal after all.
