Phar Lap - The Untold Story - Graeme Putt & Pat McCord

Pub 2009 Hard Cover 186 pages illustrated.

The latest book on Australasian racing legend Phar Lap. While more has been written in Australia about Big Red than perhaps any other horse, this book is different in that it reveals a wealth of previously unkwn information about Phar Lap's New Zealand background. Phar Lap: The Untold Story, covers his breeding and naming; the truth about Harry Telford's obsessive drive to buy him; an in-depth history of Harry Telford as a jockey and trainer in Australia and New Zealand, and the true story about his sad personal life; and precise details of how Phar Lap came to be purchased. Also revealed is the story of Phar Lap's passage from Australia to America via New Zealand for his ultimate success in winning the Agua Caliente Handicap and his subsequent, still mysterious death, sixteen days after that crowning achievement. Other sections deal with his most sensational victories and the reasons for the few failures in his career, the biggest of which was the 1931 Melbourne Cup, which Putt and McCord claim was an impossible mission .
