"Owners Of Phar Lap Print Melbourne Cup 1930

From an Original Oil by Robert Wettenhall

Dear Owner,

This day, 10th November 1982, I have completed the signing of each of one thousand prints of a Phar Lap painting.  The painting was commissioned by Wing Commander E.A. Browne, MBE (Ret), and was painted by Robert Wettenhall, a well-known Australian artist who specialises in lively outback scenes; particularly those capturing droving and racing life.

Your print shows Australia's most famous horse, and in my opinion, the greatest horse ever to grace Australasian turf, in full flight.  I know of no other print or painting which so strikingly recaptures the superb muscular power of Phar Lap, with four feet off the ground, being driven to yet another victory by his great heart.

Research for the painting was carried out at the National Library, the National Museum of Victoria and was aided by photographic research and talks with "old timers" like myself.

Regarding the signing of this limited edition of 5000 prints, only those numbered 1 to 1000 have been, and only will be, signed by me (Tommy Woodcock).

I am pround to be associated with this promotion and feel sure you would agree with me when I say 'you now own a piece of Australian history'.

May you enjoy many hours admiring 'my Par Lap';  I certainly shall!"

This letter was signed by Tommy Woodcock, Phar Lap's Strapper 1928 to 1931 and Trainer November 1931 to April 1932, in the presence of Ern Browne (Phar Lap Promotions)
