In 1980 the National Museum of Victoria launched an appeal for 'a new home for Phar Lap' and to promote visitation to the Museum. As part of the fundraising activites, special wine was produced and this poster was printed for sale. The horse was also lent the Victorian Racing Club and taken to Flemington racecourse during the Spring Racing Carnival during 1980.
