Come and celebrate this wonder horse at the Melbourne museum between 3-9th October 2016. There will be daily exhibitions including a birthday cake, a chance to hold the Melbourne Cup and other activities for young and old. Checkout the website to find out what's on every day.
If you want to be one of the 350 people to take part in a human recreation of Phar Lap in the form of a giant horse photograph then register here.
The best thing about this special birthday exhibition is that it is free. All you need is to give the code "Tommy Woodcock" to get your free ticket. Check for conditions on Melbourne museum Website. For more information on the week-long event also check out Melbourne Museum Facebook page.
