Artist's Description

I am sharing with you, my friends, my precious 3 photos of Phar Lap. They were taken in 1980 when the Museum Victoria granted permission for Phar Lap to be taken to Flemington Racetrack, Victoria Australia to be displayed on his 50th Anniversary of his Victory in the Melbourne Cup of 1930.
This is the first time Phar Lap or “Bobby” (his stable name) had been out of his first display case since 1933.
These photos were taken by a friend who had the amazing fortune to work on getting Bobby to Flemington. This was the first photos of him in our atmosphere since his Taxidermy.
Phar Lap is my Ultimate Racehorse closly followed by Kingston Town…
I was a strapper and apprentice Jockey from the age of 16, so racing is in my blood…
A Heartfelt Tribute to my Bobby…
Tomorrow is Melbourne Cup Day, always makes me misty…
