Phar Lap

A true legend

By Michael Reason

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 affectionately 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.

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 & white pictures.
