John Maynard comes from both Aboriginal and racing backgrounds. He knows first hand that the premise that there had been very few Aboriginal riders is far from the truth.

My study 'The Aboriginal Soccer Tribe' examined the missing history of Aboriginal soccer players the book was a highly commended Walkley Finalist and Deadly Finalist.
