What are the odds - Bill Waterhouse

  • $30.00


Used - Random House - Bill Waterhouse has worked the track for more than 70 years. His first day as a bookmaker in his own name was Epsom Day 1954. Henry Waterhouse, his ancestor, brought horses to Australia with the First Fleet . This family had no choice but to follow their destiny and become THE dynastic Australian horseracing family and we are now into the fourth generation of Waterhouse bookmakers. Bill was a practising barrister, albeit well-known at the track, and bookmaking was a side business until his brother Charlie died suddenly and he \'temporarily\' took the family bag to the track. At 85, he can still be found - with grandson Tom - trackside and still no one else can do the numbers as fast as BilL - SM 9/10/16
