Rick Hore-Lacy, law-student-turned-horse-trainer who became an Aussie legend in the sport of horse racing. The outspoken larrikin caused a furor in the Elite horse racing industry by breaking conventions with his vociferous opinions and infamous actions. Told with uncompromising honesty, this is a tale that will take you to the inner sanctum of the ‘Sport of Kings’ and into the heaving action of the most exciting wins of his 20 Group-One victories. A story that tells of criminal sabotage, crushing mistakes, outrageous success, and above all, indomitable Aussie spirit. “I regard Rick Hore-Lacy as Australia’s (and possibly, the world’s) best judge of a yearling. He has proven that season on season, buying an extremely limited number and every year producing an outstanding runner. He is without peer in the sale ring. As a trainer, he was refreshingly unconventional and enjoyed some great successes.” – Gai Waterhouse

“Rick Hore-Lacy is a wonderful horseman with a great eye for picking a yearling who would turn in to a successful runner. We had a wonderful association over the years and a lot of luck with some outstanding horses like Redoute’s Choice. It was an honour and a privilege to ride for him.” – Jim Cassidy (Pumper)

“To say Rick Hore-Lacy is a character is an understatement. I’ve known the man for 30 years or so and have always enjoyed talking with him on all manner of subjects. He’s a man that’s trained great sprinters, stayers, 2YOs and jumpers. His methods weren’t always conventional but were always well thought through and generally very successful. His eye for a young horse is approaching legend status and his wit and good humour have reached it.” -Lee Freedman
