New Zealand horse racing commentator, Alby Gain, has announced his retirement from race calling after more than 30 years in the racing industry.

Gain made his first call in the mid 1970s for Radio New Zealand, before taking on a fulltime role with Radio Pacific in 1981 where he called up to 200 race meetings a year.

Gain will call his last race at Alexandra Park on Friday the 13th of August.
