Never in doubt ... Co-trainer and driver Mark Purdon salutes the crowd after driving champion pacer Lazarus to his second consecutive win in the New Zealand Trotting Cup at Addington yesterday. PHOTO: JONNY TURNERSuperstar pacer Lazarus confirmed his champion status with a brilliant win in yesterday’s New Zealand Trotting Cup at Addington. After his horse’s second consecutive win in the 3200m race, Purdon could only find one word to describe his superstar. Chin was completely lost for word to describe the feeling of watching Lazarus win. Otago horse Titan Banner’s chances were effectively extinguished after he lost the perfect one-one sit when Australian raider and eventual third place-getter Tiger Tara galloped in front on him.
