The Big Book of Australian Racing Stories

Cover of book



Jim Haynes, Australia’s favourite tale teller, loves the sport of kings as much as he loves Aussie yarns and bush verse. From country picnic tracks to the thoroughbred racecourses of Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, from Archer to Black Caviar, from the mysterious punter Louis the Possum to the great trainer Bart Cummings, he brings these two great loves together in the biggest book of Australian racing stories ever.

In these stories, full of the humour and romance of the track, Jim reminds of the great champions, the tragedies, and the unique characters (equine and human) of racing. Here are stories of famous races and jockeys, touts and urgers, nose-to-nose battles and a rort or two, as well as country race meeting where anything can happen.

This rich collection captures the heart and soul of the turf and reminds us exactly why a day at the races and having a punt have such an important part of the Australian spirit.
