Hope not but it could be!

Long term plans for champion Lazarus have not been decided but Cup Day tomorrow will be the last time he will be seen at Addington in a long while -and maybe  ever.

Nobody is taking any extreme options about his longer term future but when he flies out of Christchurch on Saturday en route to Perth that is the last New Zealand will see of him this season.

"He will be doing what Smolda and company did last year" Mark said of the Inter Dominions. "He will fly out of Perth after the Inter Doms but to Melbourne and Sydney for the carnival racing there. There is no point in bringing him back here just to fly back to Australia"

"I can't see him racing here again this season. The races are just not there.   After the features over there he will be going for a spell. Hopefully he will be back in the spring but you don't look too far ahead with horses even ones as good as him"

Lazarus is poised for a lucrative stud career but that is not the main focus of his syndicate of owners.

"We are into racing not breeding. Going to stud is not a priority and we hope he can race on" says syndicate leader Phil Kennard.
