How many racehorse trainers are household names? There's Bart of course; the Master. And First Lady Gai. And then there's Moody. Peter Moody.
Respected news journalist, broadcaster and veteran racing writer Helen Thomas travelled far and wide to discover what drives Peter Moody. With Moody's full co-operation, and extraordinary access to his family, friends and foes, Helen traces Moody's career – from Charleville and his time with turf legends TJ Smith and Colin Hayes, through to the day he first noticed the bay filly that grew up to become Black Caviar. From how he's really handling life without her, to the fallout of the cobalt scandal, and his recent announcement of quitting racing forever.
Articulate, reticent, tough enough to try to bluff his way out of any stoush with racing officials, sensitive to the point some close to him fear he is depressive, Moods is an intriguing character. And, for the first time ever, here is an insight into the man many will always see as Black Caviar's trainer, a true Aussie legend.
