The most loved trio in Australian horseracing during the Depression. Champion racehorse, Phar Lap, champion heavyweight jockey, Jim Pike, and the centre of Phar Lap's world....his adored strapper, Tommy Woodcock. Phar Lap would do nothing without Tommy there and Tommy tended to the every care of his beloved 'Bobby' from the day he arrived. When the horse hemorrhaged and died in his arms at Menlo Park in California, Tommy was inconsolable. The 5 April 2012 was 80 years since Phar Lap's death.
Secretariat: most unforgettable, graceful, powerful horse of all time, IMO.
Sea biscuit un petit cheval comme jappeloup..... ohysique pas fait pour la course pas de pedigree cheval -au depart- incompétent à la course pour devenir ensuite l'un des meilleurs chevaux de course DU MONDE ! !!!!!!!!
Man O War: just read the fictional story of him by Walter Farley . What a great horse!
This is a magnificent shot. Beautiful.
Phar Lap - wow the contrast with his tiny jockey
