Horses, Horseracing, Breeding, Training & History of the Turf.

 

Part of a large acquisition of horse, horseracing and turf books.Many from the collection of the legendary  Ken Austin,

There are more books to come and we have large runs of magazines and such.There are further titles a bit too “used”to catalogue but in Australia the First Tuesday in November is a day when THE MELBOURNE CUP  shuts down the country.It seemed appropriate to put the books out for the Race Week in Melbourne.

***********************************************

“Inglewood Stud was founded in 1938 by breeder, auctioneer and administrator Ken Austin.Ken Austin was one of the key figures in the history of New Zealand thoroughbred breeding. His achievements in the industry include co-founding the New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association, breeding and racing numerous Group One winners, and standing the successful sires Sun King, Battle Song, Lucky Bag and the first really successful colonial bred stallion, Defaulter.

Austin immigrated to New Zealand from Australia in 1932 after travelling annually to New Zealand for the previous six years to conduct the Trentham Yearling Sales as auctioneer. He played a key role in setting up the first New Zealand national yearling sales and was involved in both the recommending and selling of the two great horses of the time, Gloaming and Phar Lap. The Wigley family still holds Austin’s original Trentham Yearlings Sales catalogue containing the pedigree page of Phar Lap, with Austin’s handwritten notes a prominent feature.”
