Lazaro "Larry" Sosa Miramontes Larry was a 19 year old stable assistant for his famous father during the successful Triple Crown campaign of Affirmed in 1978. At age 19 Larry traveled with Affirmed to Kentucky, Maryland, and New York while his father traveled between his east and west coast stables.
In the early 1980's, Larry showed great promise as a young trainer. His horse Rich Cream became co-holder of the world record of 1:19.40 for 7 furlongs on dirt in the 1980 Triple Bend Handicap.
Larry can also claim First Albert winning the Swaps Stakes, and Image of Reality to win the Milady Handicap over his father's champion, It's in the Air. Image of Reality went on to become the granddam of Empire Maker, the colt given the best chance of upsetting Funny Cide's Triple Crown ride.
Larry was survived by daughter Kristina Barrera, brother Albert Barrera and sister Blanca Uriza.
