Commands Adds South African Black-Type
In South Africa, Gr3-winning & multiple Gr1-placed former Woodlands Stud & now Darley stallion Commands (Danehill-Cotehele House, by My Swanee) added a black-type success when Australian-bred gelding Conquered Dream (Commands-Conquered, by Star Watch) scored a 2.5-lengths victory in the R135,000 (A$20,000) Listed Derby Trail (2000m) for 3YOs at Turffontein. Conquered Dream (ridden by Anton Marcus for trainer Charles Laird) defeated Brazilian-bred colt Ilsanpietro (Mark Of Esteem-My Little Life, by Ghadeer) & fellow gelding Draw Bridge (Fort Wood-Daphne Donnelly, by Golden Thatch). Conquered Dream (a $480,000 yearling at the 2008 Magic Millions Premier Sale) now has 3 wins from 4 starts.
