Phar Lap catalogue brings top dollar

The recently unearthed original auctioneer’s copy (dated January 24, 1928) of the Yearling Sale Catalogue in New Zealand for the sale of Australian champion racehorse Phar Lap sold for a staggering $46,360 (including buyers premium) at Mossgreen’s auction on November 2.

A bright red chestnut standing a massive 17.1 hands, Phar Lap (1926-1932) dominated Australian racing of the era, winning 37 of his 51 races (including the 1930 Melbourne Cup) – and being placed second or third in five others – and in the process capturing the public’s imagination.
