Great to catch up with the ebullient John Holloway whose career as a racing writer began with the defunct Sydney Sun in 1959.
Holly talks about his inner city childhood and those early days in the print media when he got to work with some of his boyhood idols.
He takes us through a long and diversified career, paying tribute to some of the special people he met on his journey.
At 75 John is still contributing a popular weekly column “Bloodlines” in the Sydney Morning Herald. He’s a regular at the yearling sales where he assists a couple of high profile breeders.
