Peter Klein has been involved in racing for over thirty years as a strapper, trainer and punter and has seen all the highs and lows of the racing game. He's the son of well known and much loved Australian children's author Robin Klein.
At sixteen he left home to work for some of Australia's top trainers such as Bart Cummings, Geoff Murphy and the legendary T J Smith. During his stable hand days he was a one-time strapper of champion galloper Kingston Town and is still actively involved in racing, working in the media in his role as racing manager for Australian Associated Press.
Klein is better known these days as an author. His works include his autobiography, A Strapper's Tale, and the Punter racing crime novels, which includes his latest book, Punter's Turf.
