During his reign of victories he managed to become one of the cultural icons of Australia – despite the fact that he was foaled in New Zealand. Phar Lap gained enormous attention during his era of victory in Australian races from 1928 to 1932; when he died an untimely death that many claim was a case of poisoning. Despite his short tenure at the race circuit, Phar Lap achieved the status of an icon because of his unbeatable winning streak.
