True Grit - Tales From A Decade On The Turf, Les Carlyon
1 Les Carlyon True Grit - Tales From A Decade On The Turf
Mandarin 230494 Australia 1996 1863306064 / 9781863306065 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Four decades of tales from the turf from Australia's leading writer on history and horses, Les Carlyon. Every outrage that occurs on any racecourse anywhere can be explained by one line from Damon Runyon- 'Well, it is horse racing.' Les Carlyon's acclaimed collection of feature stories and vignettes from Australian racing now spans forty years. From Bart Cummings before he was a Cup legend to Colin Hayes and Kerry Packer and Peter Moody and his unbeatable Black Caviar, no one sees the magic and heartbreak in the world of horses and racing with quite the poetry of Les Carlyon. Les's eye is both sharp and tender, his writing is so vivid you can almost feel the steaming breath of the mighty gallopers on your cheek and he is under no illusions about the reality of this glorious, awful, fortune-making, heart-breaking sport. 284 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Australian::Australian History; History; Animals & Nature::Horses::Horse Racing.

A Long Way From Wyandra: My Story - From The Bush to Black Caviar, Peter Moody with Trevor Marshallsea
3 Peter Moody with Trevor Marshallsea A Long Way From Wyandra: My Story - From The Bush to Black Caviar
Allen & Unwin 234776 Australia 2017 1760295205 / 9781760295202 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition The classic story of a boy from the bush who worked his way from outback Queensland all the way to Royal Ascot.As a kid growing up in tiny Wyandra, Peter Moody learned to ride almost before he could walk. Horses were part of life, and as a teenager working for local trainers he learned many lessons - some of them painful - as he built his understanding of them. A mate's introduction got him a stablehand's job for the legendary trainer Tommy Smith in Sydney, and his life changed forever. His journey was to see him learn from some of the greatest minds in racing, as he plied his trade in Sydney, Brisbane and finally Melbourne, establishing his own highly successful stables, Moody Racing. One of the biggest innovators and risk-takers in this country's turf history, Moody won four premierships in Melbourne, the Mecca of Australian racing. But to the wider public he's best-known as the man who gave us the phenomenal Black Caviar. His account of her career is unique. He was, quite simply, the man who knew her best.From outback childhood, to strapper, foreman and then on to premiership-winning trainer and the guiding force behind the most famous horse of recent times,and finally to his clash with officialdom that prompted him to retire in the deepest frustration, Peter's autobiography gives a hugely entertaining, fascinating and authentic insight into one of the largest characters in Australian sport. While much has been written about Moody's career and legacy, it was fellow trainer, Caulfield Cup-winner Jim Mason, who perhaps said it best: 'He's like a champion horse. Occasionally something comes along that's just better than everything else. That's Pete.' 395 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Autobiography::Memoir; Biography & Autobiography; Animals & Nature::Horses::Horse Racing. ISBN/EAN: 9781760295202. Inventory No: 234776. Paperback
