Colourful jockey’s life story told in book

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Noel Har­ris has been a lead­ing light in New Zealand rac­ing for decades and this Thurs­day night, Au­gust 16, he will of­fi­cially launch the story of his time in the sad­dle.

In an evening at the Mata­mata Race Course, hosted by the Rotary Club of Mata­mata, Noel will be in­ter­viewed by top race caller Tony Lee, out­lin­ing sto­ries from a ca­reer span­ning more than four decades at the top of the rac­ing game in New Zealand.

The book, Harry – The Ride of My Life, has been coau­thored by Mata­mata rac­ing jour­nal­ist Wally O’Hearn and copies will be avail­able for pur­chase on the night.

Tick­ets for the Evening with Noel Har­ris event are $10 and are avail­able from Mata­mata Pa­per Plus or at the door. The evening will com­mence at 6pm.

Some of the pro­ceeds from ticket sales will be used by the Rotary Club of Mata­mata in youth-re­lated projects within the lo­cal community.
