Publisher Description

Ron Taylor’s broad involvement with horse racing from 1948, when he began his journalistic career, to the present day has given him a knowledge of the sport and its participants that is unique in the industry today.



He has seen all the champion horses who have performed during that 73-year period and has met and spoken with most of their trainers and jockeys. In Racing Ron his exclusive interviews and conversations with some of those participants gives you an insight into their characters you have never read before. He tells you of his personal dealings with such heroes of the sport as Bart Cummings, Roy Higgins, Tommy Smith and George Moore, and how he came to call them all his friends.



But this book is not just about his life and times as a racing writer. It covers many aspects of his life and career including his time living in Tuscany that offers an insight into Italy you won’t find in a brochure, and some amazing anecdotes from his nearly 20 years as a Tour Leader for racing tours around the world. You won’t believe the antics some of the tourists got up to, and the worries and tribulations he sometimes endured before bringing those tours to a successful conclusion.
