LEGENDARY race caller Wayne Wilson died today. He was 66. Wilson had been the voice of Queensland racing for more than three decades. 

He died, after a long battle with cancer, on the eve of the Stradbroke Handicap, a race he called 29 times, including 28 in a row from 1983-2010.

Wilson began working for 4BC in 1968 calling harness racing before moving on to cover thoroughbreds.

He officially retired in 2010, but called his last race at Deagon picnics last September.

After his retirement, Wilson worked as a presenter with the Brisbane Racing Club.

He is survived by wife Sally and children Jamie and Honny.
