lawman

Overview

Lawman, who established a world record of 1:51.6, won in good company in North America, is the fastest trotting stallion ever to be imported to Australia.

He was a top racehorse in his own right, winning almost $280,000 and took his lifetime mark at four years.

A genuine speedster, Lawman clocked 11 sub 1:55 race-winning miles and established a world record of 1:51.6 as a four-year-old at The Meadowlands, cutting the first half in an amazing 55.8 seconds.

Lightly raced, Lawman was the winner of 13 races and was eight times placed from 37 starts. He was a multiple winner at The Meadowlands and was a fast finishing fourth in the fastest Breeders Crown in history

Lawman won $279,791 racing against top horses such as Enough Talk 1:49.9 ($1.1m), Vivid Photo 1:50.4 ($3m), Classic Photo 1:52.6 ($1.4m), Sand Vic 1:51.4 ($2.1m) and Muscles Marinara 1:52.2.

Champion horseman Ross Croghan, who trained Lawman during his career, believed the stallion was capable of being the first trotter to break through the 1:50 barrier.

By the Hambletonian winner and USA Horse of the Year Malabar Man, now making an impact as a sire of sires, Lawman belongs to a family replete with champion racehorses and top sires.

He is out of Malabar Gracious, a daughter of the ‘Hambo’ winner Armbro Goal, from Jane Lobell, by the world champion Speedy Somolli, also a ‘Hambo’ winner. Malabar Gracious, who was unraced, ranks as a half-sister to Get It Right JP 1:58 ($141,553), Malabar Motion 1:58.6 ($170,155) and Far Ahead 2, 1:59.8.

Lawman can boast three strong strains of the blood of both Speedy Crown and Star’s Pride, two of the greatest sires of trotters in history.

Furthermore, Lawman descends from the same tribe as the great Donato Hanover 1:50.2 ($2.9m), champion filly Snow White 1:52.8 ($1.4m) and leading sires Garland Lobell, Cumin and Malhana Gindin.

Lawman stood his first season at the prestige Perretti Farms, USA in 2009, covering a strong book of mares.
