Smart 2YO Sent To Spelling Paddock
Azazel's autumn preparation is over with trainer Tony McEvoy deciding to spell the talented 2YO to concentrate on the spring. "He galloped really nicely but he's just not going as well as I know he can, so I've just made the decision this morning that he'll go to the paddock and we'll set him for the spring," McEvoy told Racing.com. "He's a very good colt. If you consider that Hey Doc didn't have the form of Azazel as a two-year-old and he's now favourite for the Australian Guineas, I'm really looking forward to next year with Azazel." A winner of 1 of his 4 starts thus far, Azazel (Snitzel-Allariza, by Linamix) won the Listed (Restricted) Inglis Banner (1000m) and was also placed behind Property in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview.
