Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).

Lucky #6

video

He ended up winning First!!!
Lycius Two, aka Lazarus....aka my baby!
Race was at Calder on July 6th, 2003
He was only 2 yrs old.


His last race was 5/19/08, I met him in June of 2008 and officially rescued him in November of 2008 when he was the only horse I would ride/think about after June.
I had then, no idea, how fresh off the track he was.
I just knew he was kind and awesome.

What fun to find a piece of his history....now I'm on the hunt for a Foal picture.

  3. I dont have a baby pic but I'm on the hunt..I've been stalking for one for a while now. I hope I can find one, but we'll see.
    Juliette-thanks for the tutorial, I wouldn't have found it without your help! It's such a mystery part of my boy, his racing, to me. He seems so different on the track than he does when he's cuddly sweet. I know he has a competitive side and I think he has the biggest heart, so it's just used differently know. :)
    I am humbled to see how much he's changed in the time with me, and the willingness to learn a whole new way of life. He rocks :)

  5. Woooohoooo, go, Laz!!!
    And, hey, Calder race course is fairly close to me! I recently found an organization similar to CANTER called TRAC that adopts out OTTBs from Calder and Gulfstream.
    Good luck on the hunt for the Laz baby pic!

  7. I love watching my monster's old race videos! I almost died when I found them. Everyone at my barn got a kick out of seeing him race, especially since he is the calmest horse in the barn. It's awsome researching their history. My heart sank when I read that after my horse's last race he had to be taken off the track in a trailer because he couldn't make it by himself. He finished 2nd in that race.
    I hope that you find baby pictures of your boy! I got two win pictures from one of my pony's trainers and I LOVE them. I think i might die if I ever had pictures of him as a baby!

  8. Not sure if you care or not, but you can probably get a picture from when he was in the winner circle. I got Gen's by just e-mailing the track photographers (it was listed on the track's website) and asking if they still had it...and Gen's win photo was from 1995 and I asked for it in 2009 so I bet that you can still get Laz's if you want it.
