Me & Phar Lap
The Remarkable Life of Tommy WoodcockBook - 2011
Tommy Woodcock spent a long lifetime with horses, but is best remembered, and loved, as the young man who strapped and looked after Australia's legendary racehorse, Phar Lap. And Woodcock is fondly known, too, as the old man who, almost 50 years on, trained the gallant Reckless, second in the 1977 Melbourne Cup and winner of the other major "two-mile" races on the Australian turf calendar at the time, the Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane Cups. Woodcock's life story and his great and heart-breaking moments with Phar Lap and Reckless are told in his own down-to-earth words by a master storyteller, Jan Wositzky, in this updated and revised edition, with a new introduction.
