Thoroughbreds, Trainers, Toffs and Tic Tac Men
by David Grant

Horse racing has a colourful history, and this is an entertaining account of the sport in this country. David Grant, who last year wrote a history of the TAB, has written selected chapters based around these drawings by New Zealand cartoonists from about the 1880s to modern times.
