Jazzy Sixes gets tested at Sam Houston


Jazzy Sixes established himself as the quickest runner in Saturday night’s $400,000 Texas Quarter Horse Association Sale Futurity at Sam Houston Race Park, when he set the race’s fastest qualifying time during the trials. Now, he will get tested for class. Jazzy Sixes will take on a competitive field that includes Grade 2 winner Endless Ocean and the Grade 1 placed Executive Precision.
The TQHA Sale Futurity, a restricted Grade 1 run over 350 yards, is the richest race at Sam Houston. It will share a card with the Grade 3, $62,730 Texas Derby Challenge for Quarter Horses.
Jazzy Sixes is unbeaten in two starts, and both have been clear wins. He scored by 1 1/2 lengths in his career debut June 11, then came back and rolled by two lengths in his trial for the TQHA Sale Futurity on July 16. Jazzy Sixes covered 350 yards in 17.57 seconds. Bb Azoom set the second fastest qualifying time, when she won her trial in 17.65.
Jazzy Sixes races for Jerry Windham, is trained by J.R. “Tooter” Jordan, and will be ridden by Rodrigo Vallejo.
Endless Ocean won the Grade 2 Harrah’s Futurity in March and will be making her second start following a layoff Saturday. Executive Precision won his trial by a length. Earlier in the year, he was third in the Grade 1 Manor Downs Futurity and second in the TQHA Sires Cup Futurity.
