Lava Man Wants to Run!
Former star racehorse Lava Man wildly tosses his head as he approaches homestretch at Santa Anita Park racetrack in Arcadia, California, U.S.A. He's now working as trainer Doug O'Neill' stable pony and is escorting stablemate I'll Have Another after a public workout with jockey Mario Gutierrez. Though Lava Man's been retired for awhile now, he got very anxious after shipping from his homebase at Hollywood Park, thinking he was going to race again, and acted up at the final turn.
