Welcome. I wish I could get my money back. There is another one about Phar Lap, written by a woman, but I looked at the one she did about Shergar, and the lack of commas would kill me.

Every once in awhile I get someone alluding to Phar Lap's fate, though not with any conviction. The comment about crime IS truly ludicrous; the mafia here in AU has been *very* present and active - as recently as 5 years ago - in a way that the US mob hasn't been since Chicago in the 20's and 30's (though Australia is admirably obsessive about keeping crime out of horse racing and betting in general. The rest is open for debate.

Phar Lap is actually here in the Melbourne museum - we saw him a couple of years ago. I'm not a fan of taxidermy, but he was a magnificent animal.

I want to see him. I am sure the only reason I subscribe to the murder theory is because of the movie. The scene were the horse dies so tragic and heartbreaking and I was kid. So I know I'm not rational about it.

What little I've heard about it makes for a compelling argument for murder; I wouldn't be shocked if they could prove it.
