They’re Racing!
The Complete Story of New Zealand and Australian Racing

Racing had galloped into the hearts of New Zealanders and Australians from the earliest times, well before the running of the first Melbourne Cup.

They’re Racing! brings together over two hundred years of stories and stars, personalities and pictures, in a fascinating pageant of fact and colour.

All the four-legged heroes are here, from Archer, Carbine, Phar Lap and Tulloch, to Kingston Town, Manikato and Might And Power. And their rider’s: names like Roy Higgins, Tom Corrigan, Darren Beadman, Scobie Breasley, Darby Munro.

The racing identities are featured, from Archer’s trainer Etirnne de Mestre, leviathan bookmarker Sol Green, and racing identity John Wren, to the modern legends such as T. J. Smith and Gai Waterhouse, the Hoysteds, the Freedmans, Colin and David Hayes, and perhaps the greatest racing man of them all, Bart Cummings.

In these packed pages you’ll finds words by top sports writers of the past and present, a touch of scandal, as well as many of the great paintings and wonderful photographs that our long history of horse racing has evoked.

They’re Racing! is the complete story of New Zealand and Australian racing.

A fascinating book for any racing enthusiast.
