Equitainment's Comments

This softcover edition is a must have if you love Phar Lap and want to know and see anything that is his or pertains to him. As soon as I saw this book and quickly flicked through it, I got goose bumps, with seeing the old photos and the book is really nicely set out - a beaut tribute to "BIG RED"!!!


Product Overview

Phar Lap is one of Australia's best-loved icons. The story of the gangly foal who became one of the greatest racehorses ever has captured Australians' hearts for generations.

Bobby, as the gelding was affectionatley known by his beloved strapper Tommy Woodcock, gave hope and joy to many in the grim years of the Depression, winning an incredible 37 of his 51 races. His untimely death would bring the nation to a standstill.

Today, Phar Lap continues to attract new generations of visitors to his home at Melbourne Museum. Phar Lap: A True Legend, written by museum curator Michael Reason, tells the fascinating story of the great horse and is illustrated with a wealth of colour and black and white pictures.
