At Caulfield in Melbourne, Darley's deceased Gr3-winning & multiple Gr1-placed stallion Commands (Danehill-Cotehele House, by My Swanee) added a Group success when 3YO colt Rommel (Commands-I'mtoogoodtobetrue, by Good and Tough) scored by 0.1-length for trainer Neville Parnham in the $150,000 Gr3 Zeditave Stakes (1200m) for 3YO c&g, over fellow 3YO colts Galaxy Pegasus (War Pass-Medician Star, by Galileo) & Convincible (I Am Invincible-Gold Licence, by Hussonet). Rommel, who was purchased by Parnham for $140,000 at the 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Willow Park Stud, took his record to 4 wins (including the Gr2 WA Guineas) and 3 placings (including the Gr2 C Western Australian Guineas, Listed WATC Fairetha Stakes & Listed WATC Magic Millions Perth 2YO Classic (R)) from 12 starts for $483,350 earnings.
