    His heart is back in NZ I believe. They did an autopsy in 2000 that revealed bacteria that was only discovered in the 80's, so no one knew it was there in the 30's. This led to them saying the most likely cause of death was colic.

    In 2008 they revealed that Phar Lap had ingested a massive dose of arsenic 30 to 40 hours before his death. However, in the 30's, arsenic was a common tonic given to race horses, and thus is not unusual in itself.

    Thanks for that Chiilaa,

    Arsenic..thats right...

    I have and old Showy friend that gives her gelding a very small dose of arsenic every year to make him drop his winter coat...She swears by it..

    I would never do that ...and was quite shocked when she told me what she was using..

    So YES...the oldtimers used it all the time...

    They probably gave it to him to clear his upset tummy..???

    Colic...i hate that word...
