It's Racing Time

It's spring carnival racing time in Australia and what better story than that of the immortal Phar Lap, a horse still beloved many years after his death.

Most Australians have only ever seen Phar Lap in a glass case at the Melbourne Museum, but he's still one of the most popular exhibits and his story continues to fascinate.

In a time of economic hardship, Phar Lap was an inspiration —he won and won and won.

He and his trainer, Tommy Woodcock were very close. Tommy loved the horse.

The drawings above are by our own Moira Hanrahan, of course. There are lots more in the book.

Visit the PRACE PageTurners website to hear the story read aloud.
