    Only the 2nd horse trotted all the way but the winner was impressive after conceding considerable ground early

Only 8 mares were bred to him the following season as word spread quickly that something was seriously amiss.

    NSWHRC, desperate to cut its losses and save some face, bundled the horse off to a reluctant Alabar. Alabar was smart enough to stand the horse in NZ's more moderate climate where he covered 108 mares for 54 live foals (50% fertility) and covered 124 in the just completed season.

    Alabar has improved Lazarus' fertility rate from totally uncommercial to poor or borderline commercial.

    Nobody will be surprised that Lazarus Sires quality winners. The question remains would you chace your money to breed to him with the knowledge you have only a coin toss chance of getting a live foal?
    Maybe a little surprised as Bettors is still yet to leave a successor
    Betterthancheddar is probably the closest - he has had 5 make $M

    The fertility problem is an added worry

    No wonder SA is in dire straits
    A 2yo race at GD on Saturday night for $3k

    https://www.harness.org.au/racing/fi...23#GDC11032309

    The crazy thing about it is that this is the second of 3 heats, this one has attracted 5 starters - 2 who went around in last weeks heat of only 4 starters, even with one heat to be held next week, probably all are going to get a start in the final if they want it. These tiny fields will not attract much punting - a preliminary/warm up followed by the Kindergarten Stakes may have been the go (easy in hindsight, I know)

    ps Just Callme Torque is odds on fav for the second week in a row

    It is a huge gamble that Mel Mara will make a sire (IMO) but we will get our first look tonight as has his first ever starter (in Oz at least) goes around in the above race
    The only millionaire of Lis Mara, he has served a dozen plus mares for 3yrs now

    When Star Man won last week's heat, that was Major Secret's first winner (after having only 1 starter from his first crop)

    Have a look at last week's heat and see how many time the $1.18 favourite galloped

    https://www.harness.org.au/racing/fi...23#GDC06032301

    Do you want to take the $1.12 about him this week?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
