SPORTSMAN, Australia's most authoritative racing journal, is the form bible for all students of racing. Committed to the provision of clear and comprehensive form analysis and the latest inside information, Sportsman is a national publication produced twice weekly, with extra issues produced during all major carnivals.
Sportsman has been the backbone of newspaper coverage of the racing industry for more than 100 years. First published in October 1900, the newspaper has traced the development of Australians' love affair with racing for successive generations. Among Sportsman's distinguished early editors, the poet AB "Banjo" Paterson - who penned the words to our national anthem and who was himself an accomplished horseman - stands out. Paterson was in charge of Sportsman from 1921 to 1930. Expert editors of the modern era include Tom Brassel, Barry Parkes, Ken Callander and Tony Thomas.
The present editor, Paul Micallef, is an acknowledged form expert and his inside knowledge of the industry is unequalled.
Staff members include form expert Ray Hickson and breeding buff Shayne O’Cass.
Redesigned and revitalised at the beginning of 2004, Sportsman is the essential guide to all the winners in all forms of racing, nationwide.
