AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Visiting friends on a remote station, a padre is reminded of a Christmas racing carnival some years earlier when a city jockey-cum-trainer managed to infiltrate himself into several influential positions. The padre and his friend managed to foil the man's attempts at manipulating the race outcomes, but then found they must also curtail his manipulative actions with poker machines, card games, and even friendly foot races.
