|Harrap, first edition, 1959, illus Joan Kiddell-Monroe|
Whether a Thoroughbred cross would have been allowed to enter the Melbourne Cup I do not know - but it makes a very good story.
Fury was first published by Harrap in 1959, illustrated by Joan Kiddell-Monroe. Armada picked up two of Hazel's titles (the other was Jago) in the 1970s, and issued them in paperback. After that, the books became extraordinarily difficult to find. Hazel republished both Fury and Jago herself in 2011.
