- hey remember when this was a valentine's special

If this didn't get delayed so often, I could have gotten this up on the actual anniversary of Phar Lap's death last month.
I'm glad I was able to find pictures of those newspapers.

The true reason for Phar Lap's sudden death is debated even today. The major theory is that he was poisoned by American gangsters who wanted to take him out of the next race for messing up the odds, due to the large amount of arsenic found in his system. However arsenic was apparently also an ingredient in many performance-enhancing horse tonics at the time. We may never really know. The gangster murder plot is more exciting though.

Also, I recycled the 1920s character designs a bit for the others, but changed them just barely. (Mostly Brisbane, because her old timey swimsuit just didnt feel mood appropriate)

...I never thought I'd have an occasion to say this, but Mel looks...scary...
it really underlines the depth of the impact this has had on him, I think.
I like the costumes very much, especially the new design for Bri. Both she and Adelaide look beautiful.

Bri looks so cute here. The detail on Mel is also great (he looks absolutely devastated, which is fitting for his character in this scenario). Here's hoping Mel gets comforted by someone in the next page.
