On the Punt: True Tales from the Track




Brimming with Bartley's signature wit, these stories will have you trackside before you can even open a form guide.

EVER HAD AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY ON THE PUNT?
Racing aficionado Patrick Bartley collects tales of fervour, intrigue and folly straight from the track.  His anecdotes offer a view into the world of racing: the big wins, gut-wrenching losses, plunges, long-shot winners and larger-than-life characters that colour Australia's racetracks.
Brimming with Bartley's signature wit, these stories will have you trackside before you can even open a form guide.
'Patrick has gathered the stories racing people tell each other when they think no one else is listening.'
