Commissioner Training Forwardly for FOY

Todd Pletcher-trained Commissioner is training forwardly for his scheduled stakes debut in the $400,000 Besilu Stables Fountain of Youth (G2) at Gulfstream Park on Feb. 22.

“We’re very pleased with him,” Pletcher said. “Physically, he’s in great order. He holds his weight well. He’s a very easy horse to train.”The 3-year-old son of A.P. Indy is scheduled to breeze at Palm Meadows, Gulfstream’s satellite training center in Boynton Beach, Sunday in preparation for the 1 1/16-mile prep for the $1 million Besilu Stables Florida Derby (G1) on March 29 and the Kentucky Derby (G1) on May 3. It will be his fourth breeze since his sensational 2014 debut.

The WinStar Farm homebred colt, who had opened his career with a second-place finish at Monmouth and a 1 1/8-mile maiden-breaker at Saratoga last summer, came back from a long layoff to prevail again at the 1 1/8-mile distance at Gulfstream on Jan. 3. Commissioner stalked the pace before taking over the lead in the stretch and holding off Top Billing by a neck. The Shug McGaughey-trained Top Billing came back to register an eye-catching last-to-first allowance win on Jan. 29.           

“For him to win a mile-and-an-eighth race off a layoff against a top-quality field and Top Billing coming back to win impressively really flatters the race,” said Pletcher, who teamed with WinStar Farm for a Kentucky Derby win in 2010 with Super Saver.

I really like this horse. Hope he shows us something in the FOY. I threw down a few bucks on the Derby Future wagers. 20-1.
Anxious to see how this one runs in stakes competition
