“The Wonder from Down Under” Lazarus N will be making his second start on North American soil in the Canadian Pacing Derby. The 6-year-old stallion won his U.S. debut on Aug. 10 at Hoosier Park in the $325,000 Dan Patch.

Earlier this year, Lazarus N was purchased by Taylor Made Stallions and brought to North America with eyes on the top races for older pacers and a potential world record.

The son of Bettor's Delight, out of the Christian Cullen mare Bethany, dominated the racing scene Down Under, winning 35 of 45 starts and earning $2.6 million prior to being purchased.

Lazarus N races for Hall of Fame trainer Jimmy Takter.

Dancer Hall has been a breakout star this season at Woodbine Mohawk Park and now the 4-year-old will get the opportunity to take on the sport’s best in the Maple Leaf Trot.
