The day New Zealand mare Ethereal rounded the home turn and accelerated away from the field to win the 3.6 million dollar Melbourne Cup, Sheila Laxon become part of horse-racing history. The first female trainer ever to win the prestigious cup, Laxon was thrust into the spotlight.

Sheila Laxon has always been passionate about horses. By the time she was a teenager, she dreamed of being able to earn a living from her four-legged friends. A series of adventures led her to New Zealand, right into the heart of the racing and breeding industry in Cambridge.

Laxon loves her horses, coaxing them with kisses and pats and urging them to do well. Her training practices might seem unorthodox, but the results are spectacular. In WINNING SPIRIT Laxon talks about the important influences that have shaped her life and career, and given her the determination to succeed against very difficult odds.
