About the Author

Author Betty Lane Holland was editor of the Australian Horse and Rider magazine for 5 years and New South Wales editor of Hoofs and Horns magazine for another 5 years until a career change when she broke through the ban on women racehorse trainers to become the first woman in the world to win a major training premiership. After leading the New South Wales Central Western Districts trainers premiership for three consecutive years she became the first woman ever licensed to train at Randwick, headquarters for racing in Australia, and the first woman to be granted a number 1 licence - a position she held for 15 years until her retirement.
