AZUMA MURA now has back-to-back scores after her 2 1/4-length win going a mile on the dirt at Laurel. The just turned 3-year-old filly from the first crop of ALBERTUS MAXIMUS was competitive from the start. She was four wide racing for the first quarter mile but soon sprinted clear of the pack and remained in front the rest of the way. AZUMA MURA was coming off a 2 1/4-length win going six furlongs here in December and was a 2 3/4-length debut winner last year at two. Bred in Kentucky by Nossab LLC out of the Storm Cat mare Singin Up a Storm, the Hamilton Smith trainee races for Lee R. Christian.
