Publishers Description: Ever since he was a kid, Jim Haynes has been captivated by the exciting and colorful world of horse racing. Whether its the love of a satin-coated thoroughbred, the scurrying touts and coat-tuggers, the surge of a last minute betting plunge in the ring, or the thrill of a close-fought finish that takes you there, the racetrack is a colorful stage where all the drama, heroism, humor, and uncertainty of life itself is played out. The Best Australian Racing Stories: From Archer to Makybe Diva captures this passion on the page, bringing together in one volume the finest racing stories and verses from some of Australias best-loved writers. Here are tales of childhood dreams, great achievements, victory in adversity, and also tales of tragedy and heartbreak. There are stories of crazy schemes and hilarious events that could only happen on an Australian racetrack. There are colorful, larger-than-life characters immediately recognizable to us all. We all had an uncle like some of the characters we meet here. There is also a fine collection of stirring ballads, hilarious verses, and poignant and moving poetry.
