Long-time devotees of the racing scene in Sydney, Australia, will remember The Gadfly, a column published in the turf lifftout of The Sun Herald newspaper every Sunday from the early 1980s to late 1990s. Several journalists edited the column over the years, recording the intersection of racing and public life: the good, the bad, the beautiful and the just plain ugly. A blog is the perfect medium to revive the Gadfly brief, which was to report on the Australian turf "without fear or favour". Email us here to leave any general comments about the site.
