            All his life, award-winning journalist and author Andrew Rule has watched the heroes and villains of racing: dreamers and schemers, winners and losers, horses and riders. In Chance, he distils the daring, the desperation and danger of the track into a bravura account of some of A...ustralian racing's most famous and infamous moments, its celebrations and its secrets, the grittiness of the gambling life behind the glitz and glamour. With an ear for the colloquial, the humorous and the absurd, and an eye for physical bravery and financial folly, Rule shows how racing still defines part of the Australian character. Here are stories of those who set the odds and those who take them, of miraculous wins, 'plunges' planned more carefully than bank robberies, of tricky trainers, reckless jockeys and bold bookmaking dynasties. From the master farrier who fixes a lame horse's feet and lands a fortune, to the broke punter who turns loose change into the price of a house in a few crowded hours, to the tycoon who takes down the Waterhouses for a million bucks. Tough and tender and darkly funny, these stories transcend the gaming industry they call the sport of kings.

            Last Jump (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Benney, Elizabeth

            Author Elizabeth Benney was a brat of a child. She's completely candid about it - self-centered, perverse, willful, obstinate ...living for her one passionate obsession - horses. It's a life-story that at last faces up to what we must all confront, that's if we're lucky enough to... live long enough. What will it be, in our own advancing years, which we will be forced to give up, forever? Will she ever learn to say 'No more'? Liz Benney portrays her day-to-day life running of their New England horse farm, and the many return visits to her own country, New Zealand. Then there are her accounts of her girlhood, her forays into the Antarctic and into deepest China, and her extraordinary capacity for attracting memorable characters. Throughout it all is the foundation of her marriage to 'rock solid' Kiwi mathematician Dave, her family and friends and the undying 'can do' spirit of her pioneering New Zealand forbears. Michael Korda, publisher, editor and bestselling author (his biography of T.E. Lawrence) has said: 'I enjoyed reading this story very much. It is funny, sometimes sad, and full of great stories, exactly what a memoir should be.'
