Item description

"A chronicle of the impact of a much loved and much lauded horse racing icon, this is a complete account of Phar Laps life. It details the many mysteries of his career, from his purchase as a gangly gelding bought cheaply in New Zealand to the infamous shooting that occurred just days before his great triumph in the 1930 Melbourne Cup and his previously unexplained death in North America. Bringing to life the characters of the racetrack, this book also examines the way media played a part in building the legend. Beautifully presented with archival photographs, newspaper articles, and racing memorabilia, this is a handsome commemorative of one of the best race horses there ever was."
