Theincredible story, for the first time told in novel form,of Phar Lap, the racehorse that became a champion, and then alegend.
Phar Lap first...?aylight second. It became a familiar refrain from racecallers as the great horse tore up every race track and record, becoming the people's champion in 1930s Australia and abroad. For those closest to the mighty stallion it would be the ride of their lives, on and off the track, as careers, relationships and fortunes were made and lost in just a few years of unrivalled glory.
Award winning author Kelly Ana Morey takes the reader beyond the racetrack histories and the popular mythologies and, for the first time in novel form, brings to life the characters and the times that turned Phar Lap into the legend he remains to this day.
Equal parts tragedy, triumph, thriller and mystery, Daylight Second has a heart as big as Phar Lap himself.
