Book Description

The stories and verses in this collection are not just anecdotes, racing history pieces or rehashed feature articles from sports journalists; first and foremost they are good literature.

The common thread running through the wonderful Australian short stories featured in this volume is the real Aussie character and passion for life that racing seems to bring out in our culture.

There are tales of childhood dreams, great achievements, victory in adversity and also tales of tragedy and heartbreak. There are stories of crazy schemes, hilarious events and colourful, larger-than-life characters, as well as a fine collection of stirring ballads, hilarious verses and poignant and moving poetry.

Racing is the sport of kings and deadbeats. This volume captures all that thoroughbred racing brings to the lives of the owners, breeders, trainers, jockeys, punters, battlers and dreamers who live with horses every day, or just love a bet on the Melbourne Cup.
