||Synopsis: Phar Lap, the legendary Australian racing horse, is as well-known today for his mysterious death as for his fabulous accomplishments in life. Beginning at the end, the film flashes back to the day that Phar Lap, despite his lack of pedigree, is purchased on impulse by trainer Harry Telford. Phar Lap loses his first races, but Telford's faith in the animal is unshakable. Suddenly the horse becomes a winner, thanks to the love and diligence of stableboy Tommy Woodcock. American-promoter Dave Davis arranges for Phar Lap to be entered in several top races, where his "long shot" status results in heavy losses for the professional gamblers. Just after winning an important race in Mexico, Phar Lap collapses and dies; though the film never comes out and says as much, it is assumed that the horse was "murdered" by the gambling interests.

A good horse racing story - especially if it's based on real life -
usually gets my attention and this is no exception. Phar Lap was a
famous New Zealand race horse. This was another Seabiscuit-type horse
who overcame big odds to achieve greatness. He just never got much
press outside of New Zealand, I guess.
Rob Leibman, as the generally unlikable guy in the film (who does have
a few good moments, to be fair) is the most interesting actor in here.
However, the star of the movie, outside of the horse, is Tom Burlinson,
the best friend Phar Lap ever had and the only likable male in the
The story never lagged and was beautifully shot. I am still waiting for
a DVD of this and hopefully it will be made. It deserves having one and
I was hoping it would ride the coattails of the Seabiscuit publicity
tail, but apparently not.
In summary, a nice story of a horse who triumphs despite a greedy
trainer and owner who overwork the animal....at least according to the
movie. Yeah, I realize there is a good chance much of this was
exaggerated. The film industry tends to fictionalize these "true"
stories. Whatever the case, this is a great story.
