Keith Noud was the voice of racing in Brisbane.
Keith's unmistakable tones, which brought over 45,000 races to punters throughout Australia since he first faced the microphone in 1937, crammed a remarkable life which spanned 89 years, from the time it began at Randwick.
Keith's father John was a well known trainer and won the Caulfield Cup in 1911 with Medallist and the 1925 and 1926 Stradbroke with Highland.
Keith began his career as a journalist but later added race callling and television to his considerable talents. He called races for the ABC and 4BK and was Brisbane's course broadcaster until he retired. He was Turf Editor of the Brisbane Telegraph through the 1960's and 1970's and services to the community and contribution to the racing industry earned him an MBE.
