Following the success of Off the Track and At the Track comes the third in the best-selling series of horse racing history and trivia. One more time Barry and Alan Wood have delved into the sometimes very murky depths of horse racing, to surprise, inform and, most of all, entertain.

You will read how the story of Archer, one of Australia’s greatest racehorses and winner of two Melbourne Cups, is more ‘fib’ than fact. How the king of ring-ins, Peter Christian Barrie, wrote the book on ‘colour matching and concoctions’, where he guaranteed your horse a win. And how mother nature robbed the winner of a major Australian race where the photo finish camera was the culprit. Plus the uplifting story of what a racehorse did for his partially blind owner.
