Publisher Description

Bill Waterhouse has worked the track for more than 70 years. His first day as a bookmaker in his own name was Epsom Day 1954. Henry Waterhouse, his ancestor, brought horses to Australia with the First Fleet . This family had no choice but to follow their destiny and become THE dynastic Australian horseracing family and we are now into the fourth generation of Waterhouse bookmakers. Bill was a practising barrister, albeit well-known at the track, and bookmaking was a side business until his brother Charlie died suddenly and he 'temporarily' took the family bag to the track. At 85, he can still be found - with grandson Tom - trackside and still no one else can do the numbers as fast as Bill.

Author Biography

Bill Waterhouse is the patriarch of the Waterhouse family dynasty. His interests and contacts range across the law, hotels, real estate, bookmaking and horse racing and he is the Consul General to Tonga. He is a true Australian larger-than-life character.
