    Default Azeri - It's a A Language

    Who knew this?

    Always wondered who/where/how they came up with such an "orignal" name for her. I would love to know how her name came about. You know, as in Paul Harvey's, "The rest of the story..."

    Had no clue Azeri is the term for the Azerbaijani language.

    Her breeder, who founded the private jet manufacturer Gulfstream Aerospace, named many of his horses after aviation checkpoints (see also ARAZI).

    AZERI refers to an aviation checkpoint in Baku, Azerbaijan.

    Cigar is named after an aviation checkpoint in the gulf. Arazi is the one named after an aviation checkpoint in the southwest, Arizona to be precise.
