AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Now in its third edition, this book documents the history of Aboriginal participation in the Australian horse-racing industry. Detailing the achievements of Aboriginal jockeys from the nineteenth century to the present day, the book highlights a part of our national sporting past that remains largely forgotten in the collective memory of the Australian public. Ignored in other published histories of the sport, the significant contributions made by Aboriginal people to the Australian racing industry are documented in this book and make it an important addition to contemporary understandings of Australian sport and the experiences of the Aboriginal participants.' (Introduction)
