Champion pacer Lazarus confirmed his status as an all-time great when recorded a stunning victory in the New Zealand Cup. The son of Bettor’s Delight gave his opposition little chance in the 2017 edition of the great race. Making it back to back New Zealand Cup wins, Lazarus now has over $2.75 million in stakes. Congratulations to everybody involved in this stunning standardbred.

Our own Bettors Delight trifected the great race, it was his fourth consecutive New Zealand Cup winner.  From the same race Tiger Tara who ran 3rd in the race, became Bettor’s Delights 33rd millionaire!

Can Australian breeders please note that American Ideal’s book is now full and closed for the 2017/18 season. Thank you to all the Australian breeders who have supported this super sire.

On the race track American Ideal continues to leave plenty of quality winners. Ideal Success was a winner at Swan Hill in track record time, Keayang Kallisto won at Melton in 1.54, she is in sizzling form at the moment, Mr Kiwi won on debut at Wyndham and Bontz provided an American Ideal double at the same meeting. Out west Mighty Flying Deal, Tas Man Bromac and Runrunjimmydunn all greeted the judge.

Great to see War Machine win for resident trotting stallion Pegasus Spur at Wyndham and at the same meeting Crazed’s daughter She’s All The Craze got the chocolates.
