Phar Lap

Before Northern Dancer, Secretariat and Seabiscuit there was Phar Lap. Some say he was the greatest thoroughbred of all time. As far as I am concerned it was the best horse racing movie and I have been looking for it for years at flear markets and video shops. While getting ready for tonight's Japan Cup I found a full version on youtube. I just spent two hours watching it for the first time in over 10 years. What a treat. It's a true story about another equine hero.

Here is the link if you are interested - good quality also
