Last week, Miles's Momma had an awesome photo up of him racing.
I was all "What...how'd you get those photos, I wannnnt some of Lazarus!!"
and through our conversation we also discovered that Miles and Laz are COUSINS!!
Cuteness and duh, they are super handsome boys so of course they are related (through Mr. Prospector)
I definitely see a resemblance of them both in Mr. P (below)
and Laz below...pretty cool
and Miles below
Seems they are all "STARS"...or at least have them ;)
Ok, let's get to the goods!
I contacted a couple of the race tracks that Laz won at and got the photos below in just a matter of days
This was Laz's first win!
He was 2 (yikes bambino) and it was July 6th, 2003 at the Calder Race Course in Florida, near Miami-Dade
That is some major determination in that eye and whoa, look at him THROW his legs out eating up that turf.
Babyyyyy boy go!
Below is from Sept 19, 2005
So he was a 4 yr old
Nice booty horse power shot
....and it's so random to see strangers with MY horse, lol
But I'm curious...was he loved? Did they see something special in him?
Who is that adorable man with the cane?
And from July 16th, 2005
I googled their names and stable name and got nada
I would love to email whoever did love him (because how could you not?) and tell them, he's in a good home for LIFE.
This young man below...I assume would be his groomer?
Was he sweet to Laz?
I have noticed, swear, that Laz seems to understand some Spanish words
I tell him "Bueno" a lot
I hope he did too
Track conditions; FAST
Bay OTTB conditions: FASTER
All four off the ground!
I see so much of his fighting spirit everyday but just so very differently
What a good man this horse is...
if only he could talk!
