The Master's Touch

  • $49.00


This meticulously researched book covers the life and times of Etienne De Mestre who trained the winners of five of the first 18 Melbourne Cups, a record that stood until Bart Cummings arrived on the scene. His famous Terrara stable in the Shoalhaven near Nowra sent forth Archer, winner of the first two Melbourne Cups and many other leading racehorses of the late 19th century. A fine history of one of the true giants of early Australian racing.
