Already twice stakes-placed in her young career, Viv is the eighth winner from Commissioner's first crop, ranking him in the top five by winners for all Kentucky-based Freshman sires.

Viv was bred by Stoneview Farm and is owned by Tom Thurman. She is one of seven winners out of the Cherokee Run mare Colleague.
