THE 'FIRST SOVEREIGN TRUSTEE' PHAR LAP STATUE

I have just returned from two weeks in the South Isle of NZ. As well as watching sperm whales and albatross and spending a night on Doubtful Sound - I visited Timaru, the birth place of Phar Lap. This picture was taken at the racecourse. A magnificent sculpture by Joanne Sullivan. The plaque reads ...

The Phar Lap Trust is proud to present this life sized statue of Phar Lap galloping over a map of New Zealand with his foot placed squarely over Timaru, a firm reminder of his South Canterbury heritage.

Phar Lap the wonderhorse (pub Museum Victoria and illustrated by Patricia Mullins) is enjoying a second print run. That's what happens hen you back winner!
