In Alik'r there is a quest to win a race using a lizard. With the option of 3 lizards, 1 free 2 for gold. Also with the option to buy a treat that is supposed to boost your lizard.
I have tried the free lizard, free lizard plus treat. Bought one of the lizards and a treat for him. I have lost them all with the same result each time. I have tried racing during the day and night, since she says the sand might be to hot, same result.
I am hesitant to try the 3rd lizard as I have already spent between 1-2k gold trying to do this quest. I can't seem to find anything anywhere about this dumb quest.
Bought the third lizard and still lost, I have given up till I find a solid answer.
