Description

This is the remarkable story of a horse that came from nowhere to become the greatest race-mare of her generation, winning two Cox Plates and the revered Hong Kong Mile. Sunline was the only horse to be inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame while still competing, and with nearly $14 million in winnings to her name, she is the highest-ever stakes earner. Behind that success lies the story of trainers Trevor and (son) Stephen McKee, a family saga of determination, skill and luck every bit as compelling as Sunline's incredible racing career. From the back paddocks of New Zealand to the great race-tracks of the world, this is an exhilarating ride to the finish.
