The Race of Dreams: Phar Lap

Big Red won the big race in 1930

An Australian racing hero, Phar Lap lifted the spirits of a nation during the Great Depression, winning the 1930 Melbourne Cup and surviving an attempted shooting just days before the race. Phar Lap also won two Cox Plates before he travelled to America where he sadly died in suspicious circumstances.

Trained by Harry Telford and ridden by Jim Pike.
