The King

  • $110.00


While cleaning out our storeroom recently we found the last 100 copies of "THE KING", a tribute to the mighty Kingston Town. Graeme Kelly's well researched text is brought to life by a wealth of full colour and mono illustrations, some rare photos among them.

This magnificent hard cover 134 page book also feature's Kingston Town's complete detailed race record and seven generation tabulated pedigree.

Kingston Town was the only horse to win 3 Cox Plates. His record stood for 37 years until broken by wonder mare Winx. Read about his trials and tribulations, from cradle to grave. The cast of characters includes his trainer the legendary Tommy Smith, jockey Malcolm Johnston, owner/breeder David Hains, renowned vet Percy Sykes and many more.

To put the icing on the cake the book contains a beautifully written, passionate foreword by Bob Charley.
