Champion New Zealand pacer Lazarus has won the harness racing A$1.1 million (NZ$1.2 million) Tabtouch Inter Dominion final at Gloucester Park in Perth on Friday night (Saturday morning NZ Time).
The two-time New Zealand Trotting Cup winner was too tough from the parked position and beat home Chicago Bull and Tiger Tara.
Lazarus' victory was the second win in the race in as many years for the training partnership of Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen, who won the race with Smolda in 2016.
Purdon told Sky Racing after the win that Lazarus was the best horse he’d ever put a bridal on.
“He’s a champion and I don’t call many of them champions, but this horse is,” Purdon said.
“It was a great feeling, when you’ve got a horse like this it comes with a lot of pressure too — it’s a relief.”
Hall of Fame racing legend Fred Kersley was in awe of the remarkable horse that now sports a record of 33 wins from 39 starts — placing in the other seven.
“He’s a dominant horse ... he’s just outstanding,” Kersley said.
“He made it look easy. He went to the line comfortably.
“They could have gone another lap and they wouldn’t have caught him.”
The honour roll of past Inter Dominion winners reads like a who's who of racing but perhaps the greatest name of them all and certainly the greatest to have graced the track at Gloucester Park was Im Themightyquinn, winner of the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Inter Dominion Championships.By
