The deadline for supplements to this year’s Canadian Pacing Derby and Maple Leaf Trot was this morning (Monday, Aug. 20), and the Woodbine Mohawk Park race office received payments from the connections of Lazarus N and Dancer Hall.

A $40,000 payment was required to supplement to the Canadian Pacing Derby or Maple Leaf Trot.

‘The Wonder from Down Under’ Lazarus N will be making his second start on North American soil in the Canadian Pacing Derby. The six-year-old horse won his U.S. debut on August 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 Bettors Delight, out of Christian Cullen mare Bethany, dominated the racing scene Down Under, as he won 35 of 45 starts and earned $2.6 million prior to being purchased.

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

A son of Deweycheatumnhowe, Dancer Hall has won seven of his last 10 starts heading into the Maple Leaf Trot. His most recent victory was a four and three-quarter-length score in the $75,000 Earl Rowe Invitational on Sunday evening at Georgian Downs.

The Paul Reid trainee has been starring in the Woodbine Preferred this summer, as he has posted four wins and three runner-up finishes from seven Preferred starts.

Dancer Hall is eight for 13 this season with $173,500 earned for owners 1187422 Ontario Inc. of Ottawa. His career numbers currently sit at 16 wins and $273,150 earned.
