The Remarkable Story of One of Race Calling's Favourite Sons
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The View From The Clouds is a testament to one man’s love for all things horses, given free reign through the arcane pursuit of race broadcasting.
From aspiring tennis pro to national media renown, John Hunt’s journey is a compelling tale of passion and also timing, within an industry in a constant state of flux.
Hunt’s ability to romanticise the deeds of the nation’s greatest equines, particularly in harness racing, elicited a great public affection as he brought to life the triumphs, tragedies and humour woven into the fabric of this highly emotional sport.
More than thirty years in the profession have provided Hunt with an unmatched provenance from which to write. His words are charismatic, and carry in their conviction, that for all its gambling and money, horse sports enchant and lure their following through the absolute innocence, nobility and aristocracy of the horse.
As a commentator, the broadcast box window afforded John Hunt a unique point of view. A view no one else could share. The view from the clouds.
