The True Story Of The Greatest Race Horse Of Her Time.
Sunline holds the record for winnings amongst the inductees to the Australian Racing Hall of Fame, and was the only horse to be inducted while still racing. She was, quite simply, a freak horse - always leading from the front, built like a stallion, a champion of champions - as epitomised by her record as a two-times winner of the elite Cox Plate.
This is the story of how she came to be recognised as a great galloper by her owner and trainer Trevor McKee, who almost reluctantly took her on, only to discover as a morning gallop session that he had acquired a one-in-several-millions horse.
The McKee's own story is part of that tale, from their humble beginnings, taught to ride bareback by their father, to becoming the rich and rewarded owner-trainers of a legendary galloper (descended from the great Phar Lap).
