AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'John Maynard comes from both Aboriginal and racing backgrounds. He knows first hand that the premise that there had been very few Aboriginal riders is far from the truth. His book celebrates the significant and exciting Aboriginal involvement in Australian racing history.

Amongst the many Aboriginal jockeys highlighted in the book are Merv Maynard, Norm Rose, Frank Reys, Richard Lawrence 'Darby' McCarthy and Leigh-Anne Goodwin, Australia's first female Aboriginal jockey to ride a winner at a metropolitan track.' Source: Publisher's blurb (Sighted 28/07/2009).

Notes

  • Dedication: To the hundreds of Aboriginal jockeys who have followed their dreams to the racecourse.

    In particular to Leigh-Anne Goodwin-Australia's first female Aboriginal jockey to ride a winner at a metropolitan track. Leigh-Anne died on 7 December 1998 in Brisbane hospital after a fall at Roma.

    This book is a testament to their skills, their records and victories, their conquering of prejudice and of racism.
