Summary
Max Presnell is an Australian horse racing institution, a long-time journalist who began as a copy boy for the Sydney Sun in 1954 and is still writing about the turf today. Born and raised in the Doncaster Hotel, where his father was publican, Max has known, befriended and written about every significant racing identity in Australia for the last half century. He's rubbed shoulders with the elite of the sport - from Tommy Smith to Bart Cummings to Kerry Packer and Gai Waterhouse, but also the crook bookies, the pimps, the pickpockets, the dopers, the plonkers, the lobbers and the downright disreputable who give racing it's colour. Written with Max's trademark humour, style and observation, Good Losers Die Broke is a collection of great racing stories and characters from over sixty years of personal experience
