Proudly brought to you by Sky Racing



Max Crockett was one of the best known figures in the Australian racing industry. Rarely without his trademark stetson, Max was around horses from an early age, and went on to become a legend in the specialist field of horse breaking.

Many high profile Sydney trainers sought his services, and it’s believed he broke in more than 7000 valuable thoroughbreds. He tried his hand at horse training in later years, and enjoyed a great deal of success.

Max drove all the way from Mudgee to join me on Sky’s Inside Racing programme in 2012. He dispensed with the stetson when he came into the studio, and it might take you a moment or two to recognize him.

With or without the hat, he was the same earthy bloke, who made a million friends as he became a legend in his chosen field.



To mark the opening of our new page "Sky Racing Flashbacks", we present a three part special with the unforgettable George Moore. The interview was recorded in 2002, at the magnificent Gold Coast penthouse, where George and Iris Moore had been living for twenty years.

The iconic horseman was in a relaxed mood, and treated us to a wonderful trip down memory lane. George died in Sydney six years later, and Sky Racing re-screened the interview. This is the version you're about to see.
