Phar Lap (Night Raid-Entreaty, by Winkie) gave hope to Australians living in the Great Depression, and such is his ongoing legendary status in the community, it is only fitting that he is represented by three separate statues. Winner of 37 of his 51 starts, Phar Lap’s record is familiar to most racing enthusiasts and many of the general public too. Two WS Cox Plates, a Melbourne Cup, both the VRC Derby and AJC Derby, and that track record over in the USA.

Phar Lap has come to represent the ultimate in horse racing’s rags to riches stories.
