My little claiming pony

I don't know where I heard that Lucy ran only five times, but it turns out that she actually ran fifteen times! I'm sure glad I got those x-rays!

Kenny did a bunch of sleuthing and every single race she ran was a claiming race. She raced at Suffolk, Philadelphia Park, Calder, and Penn National. She won one race at Philadephia Park on December 7, 2008, and the only other time she placed was a third. I got the idea of calling the Philly to see if I could get a copy of the winning photo and the photographer called me back and she was able to track down the image and they are sending me a copy! I am so excited.

I did a little YouTube search of her and came up with only one result, which was her second race. You don't even really see her run because she threw her jockey coming out of the starting gate. That's my girl!

You can see as she comes out of the starting gate she does this wild crop hop and off the jockey flies.

Here's the video.


  1. How did u find a video like that? Laz raced 49 times in his career and I can't find any photos or videos! His racing name was Lycius Two. Although I'm not sure I may want to see him crow hopping someone off, lol! ;)

  2. I just searched around on You Tube. I did a quick search for Lycius Two and didn't come up with anything, but I have also heard that if you become a member of Equibase you can find some on there too.

  3. you can see all of your horse's race replays at . There are actually a few sites. No cost to join and the fees are small for reports and replays. You can even save them to your computer and put them on DVD.

  4. @ racediamond..I've tried that. My horses race name was Lycius Two and there are tons of videos that pop up but there is a charge I would have to pay to view it from what I can tell.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
