At the tender age of 21 years old, immortal stallion Bettor’s Delight continues to rewrite harness racing history. In Australia this week past he broke the Australian seasonal earnings record cruising past the record he created himself in the 2015/16 season!

Lazarus, ‘the wonder from down under’ made a stunning debut when he took no prisoners in the $325,000 Dan Patch Stakes at Hoosier Park. Pacing a 1.48.4. Lazarus became the first horse in harness history to pace sub 1.50 miles in both hemispheres! At Northfield Park, Bettor’s Delights 3yo son Thinkbig Dreambig won the $400,000 Carl Milstein Memorial in 1.50.0, he now has career earnings of over $300,000.
Closer to home American Ideal keeps getting winners out west, he sired a double when The Spinster and Runrunjimmydunn greeted the judge at Gloucester Park, Takara Truffle made it back to back wins for Aaron Goadsby at Newcastle, Centenario made light work of his rivals in his 2yo breeders crown heat and King Triton was impressive on debut at Newcastle.
