Author: John Russell with John Craven
John Russell is one of the great characters and gentlemen of the Australian turf. From humble beginnings as a phantom broadcaster on local radio in home-town Warrnambool, Russell was plucked from obscurity by the legendary Bert Bryant and became a hugely-respected race caller with top-rating 3UZ and later Sky Channel. Renowned for his remarkable memory and love of a fun time, Russell goes on the front foot in ‘An Ounce Of Luck’. This free-flowing tale is loaded with laughs, sadness, joy, despair, rollicking good yarns and startling revelations. ‘An Ounce Of Luck’ documents Russell’s extraordinary 54 years in a brutally-tough profession where the highs and lows were trumped by a stimulating international lifestyle beyond the wildest dreams of most punters.
