EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the essence of the golden era of horse racing in the 1930s, with Australian jockey, Jim Pike, at the peak of his career aboard the legendary racehorse, Phar Lap. The image, taken circa 1931-1932, showcases the dynamic duo as they prepare for a race, with Pike donning his distinctive red and green silks. Phar Lap, a New Zealand-bred chestnut gelding, was a champion thoroughbred known for his extraordinary speed and endurance, breaking records and captivating audiences around the world. Pike, an accomplished jockey with a keen sense of horsemanship, was the perfect partner for Phar Lap, guiding him to numerous victories and cementing their place in racing history. The pair's success story transcended borders, making them a beloved symbol of Australian and New Zealand sports culture. This photograph is a testament to the unbreakable bond between jockey and horse, and the thrill of the race that continues to captivate audiences to this day.
