For over 45 years, Ken Callander's been involved in horse racing as a journalist, TV and radio commentator, punter and owner – it's been his passion as well as his career. Ken's love of horse racing has taken him around the world and in this wonderful memoir he recounts some of the great stories of the people, places, races and horses he's known. He's watched the races at Royal Ascot from a private box, witnessed Mohammad Ali present a winner's trophy at the Kentucky Derby, and broadcast Channel 9's racing coverage from on top of Royal Randwick's manure pit. He's placed massive bets for Kerry Packer, but also given his best tips to the racing public. He's mixed with racing's elite, but never forgotten that the soul of racing in Australia lies with the passionate racing public, and perhaps it's this that has earned him such love and respect from racegoers and followers across the country. From starting out as newspaper copy boy to becoming the best-known face and voice of racing, Ken's memoirs are fascinating, warm-hearted and highly entertaining.
