Phar Lap, a giant chestnut thoroughbred gelding, is considered by many to be New Zealand's greatest racehorse, and is a much loved national icon in both New Zealand and Australia, where he was trained and raced. At the time of his death in 1932, Phar Lap was the third highest stake-winner in the world. At the height of his powers, bookmakers offered very short odds on him, even refusing to accept any bets on some races.
