Event description

Description

Join us this racing carnival to celebrate the remarkable story of Tulloch, the virtually unwanted yearling who rose to greatness with the support of Australia’s most flamboyant trainer and a contrasting dogged owner, who often clashed about what was best for their horse.

It’s more than a story about a great racehorse—one of the best to grace Australia’s turf and often mentioned in the same breath as Phar Lap and Carbine–who overcame a near-death illness to return triumphantly to racing after two years.

It’s a story about the characters behind the scenes—his trainer, the legendary Tommy Smith, his owner Evelyn Haley, the jockeys, such as George Moore and Neville Sellwood, who rode him and the his strapper and track rider, Lem Bann, a song ’n dance man who whistled his way into Tulloch’s heart.

Author Ken Linnett will be in conversation with Lem Ban. Books will be available to purchase at the event.
