Cover Story: From the Horse's Mouth

Archer, Carbine and, of course, the mighty Phar Lap… Even Australians who care little for horseracing probably know these names – legends of the annual Spring Racing Carnival. In this edition, Kevin Summers takes a trot through the myths, mysteries and ‘colourful identities’ of horseracing.

Also in this issue:

Alan Attwood meets novelist Tim Winton, Darren Levin retraces the notoriously turbulent making of the Fleetwood Mac album Rumours; Tara Judah talks to documentary-maker Luke Walker about his new film, Lasseter’s Bones; and, in ‘Roving Eye’, we present striking images from celebrity portrait photographer Richard Avedon.

This edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Heba from Melbourne. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Pamela and Andrew W in Sydney, Stephen in Brisbane, Owen and Mafa in Melbourne and Rob in Ballarat. We also have some great photos from our recent event in Sydney, The Big Shift, including one of our own Edwina posing with Moya Dodd from FIFA. The Big Shift saw business and community leaders helping ladies from our Women’s Subscription Enterprise pack editions of The Big Issue to send to our subscribers.
