Bernborough - The Races
Bernborough contested some of Australia's greatest races, competing with great success in handicaps and the prestigious weight-for-age events. From the Villiers and the Futurity Stakes to the Newmarket Handicap, Chipping Norton Stakes, Doomben Ten Thousand, Doomben Cup, and the Melbourne Stakes, the champion gave war-weary Australians something to cheer.
Every race in the period when he was trained by Harry Plant is vividly recounted: from the lead-up in the weeks and days before each race, to the event itself and then its aftermath. As each tale unfolds, the reader gains a new insight into the horse still considered by many of Australia's most respected and long-serving racing writers and horsemen to be the best they have ever seen.
