7th Winner For Freshman Sire Court Command
Wattle Brae Stud's Gr2-winning & triple Gr3-winning 8YO freshman stallion Court Command (Commands-Court House Lane, by Zoffany) recorded his 7th individual 1st-crop winner (& 1st in Hong Kong) when front-running 2YO gelding Bullish Friend (Court Command-Lady Jakeo, by Last Tycoon) scored over 1200m at Sha Tin for trainer Tony Cruz. Bullish Friend (a half-brother to stakes-winners Red Arrow & Able Choice) was the highest-priced yearling from Court Command's 1st-crop when consigned by Evergreen Stud & sold for $170,000 at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale. He is the 10th winner from 11 foal to race produce by dual Gr1-winning mare Lady Jakeo.
