Angus Masters is rich, arrogant, and determined to crush anyone who gets between him and victory. He will stop at nothing to win, even if it means breaking the rules. Logan Weston is a small-time trainer who has been knocked down more times than most. He has a point to prove and, in the true Australia spirit, is ready to give it everything he's got. `Contention' captures the heart-pounding excitement of the sport of kings; the wild seduction and temptation of dangerous women; a trainer's love for his prize horse; and the thrill of the race to become the champion. Author Stephen Irwin has held nothing back in his debut novel. He exposes the real-life injustices that occur in the thoroughbred racing world and gives the reader a taste of the exhilaration of becoming number one.
