The only thing Mark Waugh enjoys more than reeling off centuries for his country, is analysing race form and backing winners at the track.
The man they call “Junior” thrilled the cricket world for over a decade, playing 128 Test matches and posting 20 majestic centuries. Along with that he helped revolutionize the opening batsman’s role in One Day Internationals making 18 centuries. Waugh also impressed as a national selector and is now regarded as one of the sports most respected cricket commentators.
Waugh has always been a keen punter and racing enthusiast, having been introduced to the sport through his father and grandfather.
He took his “love” of racing to a new level when he married successful thoroughbred trainer Kim Waugh. The pair are now a powerful combination, Kim doing the early morning training, Mark (not known as an early riser) the form analyst and helping to manage the growing stable.
