Phar Lap gets most of the attention in Australian racing history, but there have been many others who have carved out a place in racing folklore. This is the story of Peter Pan, the only horse to win the Melbourne Cup in non-successive years. Suceeding Phar Lap as the darling of the Australian turf, he has become submerged by the legend of the Red Terror and almost forgotten. This excellent book rights that wrong and brings a wonderful, courageous horse back to his rightful place in Australian racing history. ( )
