Description
Information
Among the hundreds of callers who have broadcast over the years, John Tapp has achieved a status of his own. These days he can justifiably lay claim to being "The Voice of Australian Horseracing". After thirty-three years of calling around 50,000 races, involving over a million horses, Tappy has hung up his binoculars.

'Tappy' is the compelling story of John's journey from the days as a kid in short pants, learning his trade calling painted Paddle Pop sticks racing down a stormwater channel in suburban Sydney, to broadcasting Melbourne Cups and English Derbies. More than the remarkable story of John Tapp's life, 'Tappy' also recounts the behind-the-scenes stories of some of Australia's greatest racehorses and jockeys and the unique characters who have graced the country's racetracks.

From Randwick to Hollywood and out to far-flung country towns, 'Tappy' vividly brings to life every facet of the Sport of Kings as seen through the eyes of one of Australia's best-loved personalities.
