A Heartfelt Plea

The Wellington Racing Club has asked the help of PM Helen Clark in borrowing the heart of legendary racehorse Phar Lap from Australia’s national museum in Canberra. “I’ve written to the prime minister to see if she could assist us on her next visit to Australia,” says committee member Gerry Morris. The club want to display the heart alongside Phar Lap’s skeleton (currently housed at Te Papa) at its 100th anniversary celebrations in 2006.
