Azoom heads TQHA Sale Futurity


Azoom, who started his career in Mexico, will be the choice to win the $283,422 TQHA Sale Futurity, a stakes restricted to 2003 TQHA sale graduates, at Sam Houston Race Park on Friday night.

Azoom raced to his second victory in three U.S. starts when he won his Sale Futurity trial by an overwhelming 3 1/4 lengths. His time of 17.587 seconds was the fastest from eight trials on July 31. His only setback in the United States was a runner-up effort in the TQHA Sires Futurity.
