Champion harness racing pacer Lazaraus, goes back to the workouts today at Ashburton. The Bettor's Delight five year old starts in a two horse heat along with All Stars stablemate Heaven Rocks.

Heaven Rocks is back on track after suffering a greasy heel at his last race day start, in the Canterbury Classic two weeks ago, a race that Lazaraus won.

Both horses are continuing their preparation for this years Christchurch Casino New Zealand Cup in November. 

Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen have a big team of ten horses entered at the workouts today, with Dominion Handicap bound Prince Fearless and last years classy fillies Elle Mac and Shenanoah also making an appearance.


Titan Banner will head to the Kaikoura Cup on October 30, after winning the Terror To Love Methven Cup on Sunday.

The Art Major six year old was simply too strong for All Stars runner Dream About Me, after he led for the last lap and outstayed the rest of the field in the hands of driver Dexter Dunn.

Top trotter Monbet was supposed to have his first public trial this year at Ashburton today, as a lead-up to his race day return in the Flying Mile on the Ashburton track next Monday, but trainers Greg and Nina Hope have abandoned plans of racing him this summer, after some niggling leg issues with the the horse.

Greg and Nina hope to have the horse back and ready in time for the Rowe Cup next year.
