Spring Racing book launch: They Hit the Line

Celebrate the romance of racing and some of the greatest horses to have graced the track at The Melbourne Press Club’s Spring Racing Carnival luncheon.

Hear stories of memorable moments in modern racing history when the Club launches the new book They Hit the Line, written by veteran race caller Bryan Martin and journalist Leo Schlink.

Respected trainer Gai Waterhouse will introduce the book on 16 modern champion horses including the marvellous Luskin Star from the 1970s through to So You Think, Makybe Diva, Bonecrusher, Might and Power, Manikato and our world champion mare Black Caviar.

Join the MPC and some of the biggest names in racing for a lunch to remember. Giddyup!
