Tip of the Week

Phar Lap
In Australia, people say a courageous person has "a heart as big as Phar Lap". The legendary racehorse was powered by a 6.3-kilogram (13.8-pound) heart, which remains enshrined at Australia´s National Museum today.
During the Great Depression, 37 wins in 51 starts made Phar Lap the sworn enemy of bookmakers. Someone, suspected to be a bookmaker, tried to shoot him in 1930. Three days later, the horse won the Melbourne Cup, Australia´s most prestigious race.
