Lazy Slusan's Career Likely Over

Lazy Slusan's Career Likely Over

Millionaire Lazy Slusan, who is consigned by Three Chimneys Farm to the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale, will likely not race again.

Owner-trainer John Dolan said he will likely not enter Lazy Slusan in the Breeders' Cup Distaff, which would cost $40,000 in entry and pre-entry fees, as well as an estimated $10,000 in other related costs. "I'm debating whether to put the money up," Dolan said. "It's a little scary. I don't know what to do. For me that's a lot of money to gamble. I am on the conservative side."

In her last start, Lazy Slusan finished ninth of 10 in the Spinster Stakes (gr. I) at Keeneland, a key Distaff prep. "She threw in a clunker," Dolan said.

Since being claimed by Dolan for $62,500 at Del Mar in July 2000, Lazy Slusan has won seven stakes. Overall, she's won 12 of 47 starts and $1,150,410 and earlier this year accounted for the Santa Margarita and Milady handicaps, both grade I stakes. The mare has been at Three Chimneys Farm and out of training since the Spinster.

"I'm happy," Dolan said. "It's been a fun ride."
