              In March 2016 Peter Moody, the man who took his 'good mare' Black Caviar to an unprecedented 25 straight victories, walked away from racing. Suspended for six months after he was found to have presented a horse on race day with an illegal level of cobalt in its system, the traine...r made the drastic decision to close down his Caulfield stables altogether. How had it come to this? In Moods, respected journalist Helen Thomas traces Moody's extraordinary career, and shines a spotlight on the cobalt scandal that engulfed him. Through interviews with family, colleagues and friends, and with Peter Moody himself, Thomas explores the horseman's life and achievements- from his time with turf legend T.J. Smith to the day he first noticed the bay filly who grew up to become Black Caviar, and the inquiry that led him to quit the job he loves. Articulate yet reticent, tough yet sensitive, Moody is an intriguing character. For the first time, discover what drives the man who will always be remembered as Black Caviar's trainer, and a true Aussie legend.

              Murder on Easey Street: Melbourne's Most Notorious Cold Case (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              One summer night in January 1977, Suzanne Armstrong and Susan Bartlett were savagely murdered in their house on Easey Street, Collingwood - stabbed multiple times while Suzanne?s sixteen-month-old baby slept in the next room. Although police established a list of 130 'persons of ...interest?, the case became one of the most infamous unsolved crimes in Melbourne. Journalist Helen Thomas was a cub reporter at The Age when the murders were committed and saw how deeply they affected the city. Now, forty years on, she has re-examined the cold case, chasing down new leads and talking to members of the Armstrong and Bartlett families, the women?s neighbours on Easey Street, detectives and journalists. What emerges is a portrait of a crime rife with ambiguities and contradictions, which took place at a fascinating time in the city?s history - when the countercultural bohemia of Helen Garner?s Monkey Grip brushed up against the grit of the underworld in one of Melbourne?s most infamous knockabout suburbs. Why has the Easey Street murderer never been found, despite a million-dollar reward for information? Was the investigation mishandled? Did the women know their killer, or were their deaths due to a random, frenzied attack? Could the murderer have killed again? This gripping account addresses these questions and more as it examines one of Australia?s most disturbing and compelling criminal mysteries.

              The Horse That Bart Built (EPUB ebook)

              By Thomas, Helen

              So You Think's incredible journey. As a youngster, So You Think caught the eye of Australia's legendary trainer Bart Cummings. He liked the future he saw in his gangly frame, and soon, So You Think captivated Australasia with his rockstar good looks, his brilliance and strength. ...As a three-year-old, and at just his fifth race start, he led all the way to win the prestigious W.S. Cox Plate. A year later, he became the only horse to win the race as a three- and four-year-old. So You Think was so good, eventually breeding giant Coolmore made an offer too big to refuse. The sale saw the horse taken from Bart's stable in Melbourne and transferred to Aidan O'Brien's Ballydoyle in Ireland, in a move that stunned the nation. Today, he's the most successful Australasian thoroughbred to grace the international stage. But wherever he goes, he is always the horse from Down Under . . . the horse that Bart built.
