Keen Commander Wins City Tattersalls Lightning Handicap

Monday, 20th October 2008

Former Woodlands Stud & now Darley stallion Commands (Danehill-Cotehele House) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Keen Commander (Commands-Bonne Bouche, by Imperial Baron) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the $100,000 Listed City Tattersalls Lightning Handicap (1100m) at Randwick. Keen Commander (ridden by Shane Dye for trainer Denise McGrath) defeated fellow 5YO geldings Global Warming (Agnes World-She's Purring, by Flying Spur) & Hoystar (Danzero-Professionelle, by Centaine). Keen Commander (a $70,000 yearling at the 2005 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 6 wins (also including February's Listed Starlight Stakes over 1100m at Rosehill) & 10 placings (including last start's Gr2 Shorts over 1100m at Randwick on October 4, plus March's Gr1 Inglis Galaxy over 1100m at Randwick & Gr2 Challenge Stakes over 1000m at Randwick) from 19 starts for $372,535 earnings.
