Phar Lap (1983) Poster


Martin Vaughan: Harry Telford


  • Reporter : Why is it, do you think, that there's been this incredible reaction to Phar Lap's death? After all, he was just a horse.

    Harry Telford : He wasn't *just* a horse. He was the best.

  • Harry Telford : [When the name Far Lap is suggested for the horse]  It's gotta have seven letters. Last four Melbourne Cup winners had seven letters.

  • Harry Telford : Phar Lap wasn't a fluke, you know. I picked him from the blood lines and I persevered with him while every other trainer was laughing at me.

    Vi Telford : No-one's laughing now.

  • Harry Telford : I love the way you blokes keep calling him the wonder horse. You weren't calling him that when he was losing all his races at the start.

  • Harry Telford : [Last Lines] 

    Harry Telford : He wasn't just a horse. He was the best.
