race callers

Recommended Posts

When i was living in Chch as a young fella and going to the races Reon was the caller i heard and was always a fan so i'd rate him on top for mine.Not far behind would be Mark Mc,who hopefully is staying after reading all the comments here.And then in no particular order i'd have Tony Lee,Matt Cross,Keith Haub,George Simon.Heard a little bit of Allan Bright before he retired and he didn't do a bad job and i never had the pleasure hearing  Peter Kelly or David Clarkson but sounds like they were damn good.

I noticed someone mentioned Greg Miles in Aussie...yea he and Matt Hill would have too be my faves over there.Also Darren McAullay(i think) who calls in Perth seems quite good.

Harry Cheadle. Race caller. Born in South Africa, but has worked in Sweden doing the trots there. 

Now this guy calls a spade a spade. 

Not afraid to voice his opinion during a race. And one time (at least) referred to a jockey during the race as "a bloody idiot" as he disagreed with the tactics employed. The bloody idiot jockey obviously knew what he was doing, as he ended up winning the race. 

Still, for his passion, you can't go past Harry.

...reg Clapp, reon, Keith haub, Alan bright, Lachie Marshall, Dave Mac, Tony Lee,  Mike O Sullivan, dan Myers, ......regulars of Addington commentator night... others I remember Terry Yule, , eric.percy, I'm sure Bob Lovett (editor best bets and Friday flash)  called a few times at Cambridge and Alex  park in the 80's... never liked any of the old radio Pacific callers, Alby gain, Murry burns, Paul Davies, George Simon.
