The Almanac Podcast – Episode 21: Danny Power

Our Spring Racing carnival focus continues at Podcast HQ…

This week, Matty Q, Harmsy and Stone Cold Steve Baker are joined on the couch by veteran racing scribe and raconteur; Danny Power.

Having been in the caper for 40 years, Danny shares his extensive knowledge of racing with the ‘Nackers: where to hide the winnings from the significant other,  helping discover 1995 Melbourne Cup winner Doriemus for Lee Freedman, how the Melbourne Cup has changed over its 150 year history and has the pod in stitches with tales of the people who make racing so great.


You can get hold of Danny’s excellent yarn; ‘The Modern Melbourne Cup’ HERE
