Melbourne Cup 1930 : How Phar Lap Won Australia's Greatest Race
Melbourne Cup 1930 is the story of four days in November that became at the same time the most famous and infamous in Cup history. It began with a gunman, like something out of a Chicago gangster movie, apparently trying to kill Phar Lap on a quiet suburban street. For the newspapers, the twin stories of sporting greatness and seedy corruption were a sensational cocktail.

Their many diverse stories and the memories they invoke of Cups gone by are an integral part of this unique tale.
