Ken Linnett’s new book, Rough Habit: An Unlikely Champion, is now available.
Publisher: Hardie Grant Books. RRP: $24.99.
It’s the story of a small Kiwi racehorse whose looks prompted laughter but whose accomplishments won him acclaim on both sides of the Tasman, especially in Queensland where he became a cult hero. Featuring a rich supporting cast of humans, it also sheds light on the triumph, sadness and drama associated with horseracing.
