About

1st Edition, well illustrated with B&W images.

The grand sweep of New Zealand’s racing history, from the arrival of the first thoroughbred in 1840 to the mighty deeds of Bonecrusher, is captured in TAPESTRY OF TURF.

TAPESTRY OF TURF is the story of racehorses, great and good, of the professional jockeys and trainers who made their imprint on history, of the racing clubs up and down the country who provided New Zealand with more racecourses per capita than any other country in the world; of the owners who sustained the sport through boom times and depression; of the administrators who shaped the course New Zealand racing has taken.

All the great gallopers are there, from Lurline and Carbine in the 19th Century to Desert Gold and Gloaming; Phar Lap to Kindergarten; from Mainbrace and Rising Fast to Balmerino and Show Gate, and through to McGinty and Bonecrusher in the 1980s.

All the great sires, from Traducer and Musket to Martian, Absurd and Beau Pere; from Foxbridge through Le Filou and Summertime to Sir Tristram.

All the great horsemen, from Dick Mason and Dan O’Brien to Hector Gray, Grenville Hughes and Norm Holland, to the Skelton brothers, David Peake and his successors of the 1980s, Jim Cassidy, David Walsh and Lance O’Sullivan.

The story of how New Zealand racing took its unique twentieth century form is unravelled – how the amateur sport evolved into a billion-dollar industry.
