Azano Overcomes Blindfold Mishap to Secure First Win in Over a Year
A horse named Azano has pulled off an incredible feat by winning a race after running blind at the start. Jockey Danny Tudhope struggled to remove Azano's blindfold in the 7f handicap at Sandown, but that didn't stop them from crossing the finish line first. Despite starting the race without sight, Azano sprinted ahead, leaving the competition six lengths behind. Although the pack was closing in on them, Azano managed to hold on and win by a neck, marking his first victory in 14 months.
Quirky Horse Does Not Let Blindfold Hold Him Back
As the race started, Azano remained blindfolded for a few seconds, causing commentator Mark Johnston to jokingly say that the horse was "going off to catch a bus." Despite the initial setback, Azano maintained a comfortable lead until reaching the two-furlong pole. Although the pack began to narrow the gap, Azano displayed his determination and managed to hold on to secure the victory. Jockey Tudhope praised Azano's toughness and honesty, mentioning that it can be challenging to control the horse due to his high energy levels.
Unforgettable Moment Stuns and Amuses Punters
Punters in attendance were both shocked and entertained by Azano's stunning performance. Even with the blindfold still on for the first furlong, Azano displayed incredible strength and skill. Azano's victory was met with surprise and awe, with one spectator noting that the horse "still wins" despite the blindfold mishap. Another spectator commented on the commentator's statement, comparing Azano's speed to catching a bus. The unexpected win left both Azano's rivals and viewers amazed.
Whether Azano's blindfold mishap was a matter of luck, determination, or a combination of both, the extraordinary win at Sandown will be remembered for a long time to come.
