Book Details

The horses, jockeys, trainers and events that made Australian racing great. Illustrated with the finest examples of Australian equine art.

“Pedigrees matter on racecourses. They can’t tell us what will happen – that would make the contest too easy – but they hint at what might happen. Which is a way of saying it was inevitable that Bob Charley should produce a book that brings together racing and culture, specifically the attempts of painters across two centuries to capture the beauty and character of Australia’s thoroughbreds.”
– excerpt from the book’s foreword by Les Carlyon.

A truly beautiful book, Heroes & Champions is a wonderful gift for any true devotee of the Sport of Kings.
