“In this book Frank Hardy takes the reader into the seedy, greedy world of the racetrack.  Jim Roberts, a working class youth caught up in the Depression, bored and short of money, turns to gambling.  Starting with newspaper tipping contests and small-time investments with the local S.P. bikie, he is seized by the gambling fever.  In the grip of his craze to gamble, his youthful values are destroyed, and his obsession takes hold of him completely.  In The Four-Legged Lottery emerges Hardy’s deep understanding of the Australian working class, together with his brilliant insight into the people who made up the Australian gambling scene.”
