flag-exclusiveWELLINGTON — Canadian Pacific railway boss E. Hunter Harrison and other business tycoons have listed their prime Wellington horse ranch for sale for a whopping $45 million!

The 33.5-acre property has two horse barns with a total 50 stalls decorated with brass faucets, hand-made floor tiles and hand-made chandeliers.

The property is appraised by Palm Beach County authorities for roughly $6 million.

In addition to the railroad fat cat, the other owners include the Bennington Farm Corporation, owned by Pittsburgh real estate investor Ira Gumberg.

Gumberg originally bought the land at 4715 125th Avenue South for a measly $3 million in 2004, according to records.

Harrison spent a total $12 million in 2010 and 2011 for 50 percent ownership in the property, records also show.
