Mark Purdon comments

The odds must favour Lazarus being retired after his dramatic failure in the Breeder’s Crown and it will hurt all who knew him if this is the way he bows out of one of the greatest harness careers of modern times.

It will especially hurt Mark Purdon, his biggest fan, who formed an emotional bond with the brilliant intelligent, kind Lazarus few other horses in his life have equalled.

“I am still picking myself off the floor” Mark said soon after watching Lazarus fade quickly from the 700m when headed by McWicked and finish last in the race he had been set to win since going to the United States.

“That is just not him. I can’t understand it and don’t know what happened but I know it is not him”

While he is not making a criticism Mark does have one regret about the American career of Lazarus.

He was never consulted on any aspect of the horse’s routines and preferences from the day he was sold.

“Nobody ever rang. I didn’t really expect it because that is the way they do it over there but then maybe I could have been of some help to Jimmy even though he is such a great trainer. Because the environment and racing is so different they prefer to form their own opinions and fair enough. ”
IMO his Interpretation in plain English= Yimmy fucked him up.

Slightly off topic. Natalie Rasmussen who was involved in that race fixing/Drug episode over there drives the winner (13) on the outside in a 3 way finish and is fined $1,000 for using the whip too many times in the stretch.

Check the race out. IMO (I am an animal lover) that charge should never have been brought. I guess she's making sure she's not accused of stiffing a horse. Purdon and her had 5 horses in the race. It is a heat of the Sires Stakes.

And in her last 110 drives she has won 55 of them. .500 win percentage shows they got owners with big pockets

Bust in the US. If the horse really did “scope sick” wouldn’t they want to get the horse right and finish his career on a high note and a good performance?  They know that another race would expose him even further as an overhyped bust.

Terrible state to stand a stallion. They need a pacer so for $5-6000 he fills a void. Likely will get less than 60 mares.
you'll never really know...


press statement will say it's a full book, but how many are freebies to bolster the numbers.

NJ could turn it around a little if Gural gets his wish on a 20M charity to purses. Or if the sports wagering can muster some purse money they can put that to the young horses. I agree will be lucky to get 60 mares but I think fee closer to 10k.

Has there ever been a sire from Down Under that amounted to anything in the USA? I can't recall any ever being average at best.
