    Lazarus progeny win all 3 pacing heats of the NJ Sire Stakes this Friday

    It is Kev the Prophet
    He will have 28 of the 32 2yo's going around
    (That may be 26/30 as a couple may be emergencies)
    Races 1,3 & 4
    Not sure this link will work as you never know with USTA

    https://racing.ustrotting.com/chart.aspx

    ps This prediction is actually more of a gamble than 26/30 as he does not have the favourite in R4

    The fav in R4 is out of Keystone Velocity, a Western Hanover who had success as an older horse, winning a Dan Patch award. Like Lazarus, I think this is his first crop and his service fee was $0
    A smart move for a 2008 horse who did not start his stud career until 2019 - they didn't have the time to establish a reputation

    Well I was wrong but I was right too, Keystone Velocity's Ucandoit Blue Chip won - take him out and Lazarus got the first 7 in all three races
    Lifes A Puzzle was the fastest going 1.50.8

    The dam of Lifes A Puzzle (1.50.8) was a very good 2yo - see L Dees Lioness on ClassicFamilies

    https://classicfamilies.azurewebsite...rseID=10150528

    I have been skeptical about Bettors ever leaving a successor but 1.50.8 has me reconsidering
    Maybe Lazarus x Somebeachsomewhere dam will be THE cross

    Before I get carried away with Lazarus having 28 or the 32 runners in the NJSS heats does anybody know how many pacing stallions stood in New Jersey in 2019? There are only 109 eligible 2 year old colts and 93 fillies. Laz is said to have got 92 foals on the ground so he is easily the best represented stallion. NJ has struggled badly for pacing stallions in recent seasons so I would be keeping the corks in my champagne until I see independent analysis rather than take the word of those with a vested interest.

    I'm looking for 2019 NJ sire, but in the meantime...2018 pacing sires looks to be at just 2 farms

    https://standardbredcanada.ca/notice...g-nj-2018.html

    No luck with 2019, but here's the very thin lineup for 2022

    Good work Noel. It would seem that if 2019 is similar to 2022 there may have only been 2 farms standing pacing stallions

    Walnridge Farm (not Wanridge farm as spelt in the 2018 article)

    http://www.walnridgefarm.com/Yankee-Glide.html

    And Deo Volente Farm

    https://deovolentefarms.com/stallions/


    However
    I am not as sure about Bettors not leaving a successor NOT based on his NJ domination (possibly near monopoly) BUT rather the fact that he has left a 2yo colt that has run 1.50.8 at his first start (albeit a possibility that he could also have got that ability from his good dam)

    Here is the 2019 list

    chrome-extension://efaidnbmnnnibpcajpcglclefindmkaj/http://sboanj.com/assets/2019-nj-stallions.pdf

    Apart from the private/homebreeders the two in the post above are it for pacers, although I should probably have included Hollyview Farm as it continues to have a single cheap stallion

    That link will not work but do the following search and the one you see at the top will lead you too a very similar pdf as Noel's 2022 link

    It is interesting to note however that in R2 the 2yo Trot, that there is one out of Father Patrick plus the progeny of a couple of others that are not on the list found in the previous post
