Voice Commander Wins Weetwood Handicap

Monday, 13th July 2009

Gr3-winning & multiple Gr1-placed former Woodlands Stud & now Darley stallion Commands (Danehill-Cotehele House, by My Swanee) added a black-type success when favoured 4YO gelding Voice Commander (Commands-Voice Mail, by Magic Ring) scored by 2-lengths on the all-new Cushion Track in the $150,000 Listed Weetwood Handicap (1300m) at Toowoomba. Voice Commander (ridden by Tye Angland for trainer Nic Olive) defeated evergreen 7YO gelding Bitabiff (Kenfair-Celtic Cloak, by Pride Of Kellina) & 6YO gelding Wasted Emotions (Desert Prince-Emotional Moment, by Salieri). Voice Commander (a $55,000 yearling at the 2005 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) now has 7 wins (also including last December's Listed Festival Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney) & 6 placings (including June's Listed Eye Liner Stakes over 1350m at Ipswich, January's $500,000 Magic Millions Cup over 1400m at the Gold Coast April & 2008's Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes over 1550m at Canterbury Park) from 20 starts for $434,150 earnings.
