For a jockey, Crackers Keenan was a pretty good footballer. But as a punter and a racehorse owner, he's been kicking goals all his life. Peter 'Crackers' Keenan, former Aussie Rules footballer and now commentator and media larrikin, has always loved the punt. From the time he was knee-high to Roy Higgins, horses have been his passion. Breeding, training, racing, betting ... you name it, Crackers has been in the thick of it. And after a lifetime in the racing scene, he has a swag of stories as thick as a bookie's bag. From the great trainers like Bart Cummings and Tommy Smith to the wonderful and weird world of the jockey; from champion horses to the donkeys who couldn't win a one-horse race if they tried, Crackers has worked - and laughed - with them all. Now, in AUSTRALIA'S FUNNIEST RACING YARNS, Crackers lets us all in on the Dead Certs and Dog Food of racing.
