Bill Casey's most popular behind-the-scenes stories of all the great names in racing.
Bill Casey has been writing about the humour and heartbreak of racing for over half a century, including a 30-year stint at the Sydney Sun where he was Racing Editor, Sports Editor and finally Deputy Editor. During that period he also wrote a lifestyle column in his 'spare time' and had an Australia-wide devoted and loyal following. Next came a series of nationally syndicated columns on lifestyle and sport, including his Sunday Sun-Herald column 'Tales of the Turf', which became one of racing's best-read columns. Now his most popular behind-the-scenes stories of all the great names in racing - the owners, trainers, jockeys and thoroughbreds as well as the quirky, colourful and charismatic characters who support and follow them - have been put together in this collection capturing his wit, charm and inimitable style of reporting TALES OF THE TURF.
