Father Joe Giacobbe's The Spirit of Racing by Ron Taylor

Book Description

The concept for The Spirit of Racing came from Father Joe Giacobbe's interrelation with racing people - as a punter, friend and minister of religion. He has shared the experiences of their happier moments and their sadder ones. He has seen the joy that the high times have brought and the disappointment that followed when things went wrong. Through it all he saw the resilience of racing people; their ability to cope with the ups and downs. This is the common thread that runs through the stories in The Spirit of Racing - the spirit of racing people. How their love for the sport brings them all together as equals - the rich rubbing shoulders with the poor and generating a camaraderie that extends all over the world.
