    LAZARUS’ second northern hemisphere start has been postponed a week.

    Having been entered into the feature via a $40,000 supplementary fee, Lazarus was expected to contest an elimination of the Canadian Pacing Derby at Woodbine Mohawk Park on Saturday.

    With the club receiving just 10 nominations for the $600,000 feature, each will progress to the Derby on September 1.

    Purchased by US-based Taylor Made Stallions last May, Lazarus made a scintillating American debut at Hoosier Park on August 11 when he proved too fast and strong in the Dan Patch.

    Despite being first-up since February 24, Lazarus overcame barrier nine – outside of the front row – to score in 1:48.8.

    Lazarus was also supplemented into the Dan Patch after his connections elected to pay a $25,000 late fee.

    In what proved to be a shrewd move, the son of Bettors Delight earned $150,000.

    Lazarus’ Derby rivals include Split The House and Mcwicked, which filled the placings in the Dan Patch.

    Local hopes rely on the country’s fastest pacer – Dr J Hanover – which stopped the clock in 1:46.4 last June.
