Commander Two outclasses rivals on mid-week racing card
Created : 31 January 2018
COMMANDER TWO on Wednesday easily defeated non-winners of two, winning by four lengths at 1500 metres, turning the tables on BRANDY and MY BEIRUT, who had beaten him in December's Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes.
Non-claiming apprentice Javaniel Patterson kept COMMANDER TWO just off the leader to the top of the lane.
With no matching speed in the event, 3-5 favourite COMMANDER TWO raced home clear of 6-1 shot FAYROUZ, who came forward a furlong out.
COMMANDER TWO had placed fifth in December's Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes after a speed duel with PATRIARCH.
The bay gelding is being prepared for April's 2000 Guineas at a mile where he will renew rivalry with Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes winner MARQUESAS.
Patterson was aboard another gate-to-wire winner, making all with 6-1 upsetter TAZ in the fifth event at 1100 metres, emerging the day's top rider.
Racing continues at Caymanas Park on Saturday.
