125 Years of the City Tattersalls Club
MORE THAN A CENTURY OF SECRETS AND SCANDALS SURROUNDING ONE OF SYDNEY’S OLDEST CLUBS ARE REVEALED IN THIS FULL COLOUR HARDCOVER CELEBRATION OF CITY TATTERSALLS CLUB’S 125THANNIVERSARY.
In On A Winner, City Tattersalls Club Club lifts the lid for the first time on untold stories of diamonds, handguns and robbery as it celebrates 125 years of history. Australia has never known another club like City Tattersalls. Founded in 1895 by a group of 20 Bookmakers, City Tattersalls Club has grown to be amongst the largest and most prestigious Clubs in Australia. Located in the heart of the CBD, the Club stands today as one of Sydney’s finest entertainment venues. At first dismissed by the racing establishment, it took just weeks for City Tattersalls to win its place on the hectic NSW racing scene. In the 125 years since battler St Leger bookmakers clawed their way into the lucrative paddock, City Tattersalls has proved a true stayer.
