Touch Gold, 2011 B

A.P. Indy's Last Classic Son

Commissioner is aptly named because he was truly bred to lead. A son of the greatest breed-shaping horse of our time - A.P. Indy, Commissioner was always a WinStar favorite from the day he was born. The farm has a terrific strike rate when it has bred the best to the best, and Commissioner was bred and kept to race by WinStar to win an American Classic - something he came within a head of doing when Tonalist nailed him on the wire in the Belmont Stakes (G1). Now A.P. Indy's last Classic son at stud, Commissioner is full of the class that his genetics suggest, and he has the physical to go along with it.

 -Elliott Walden
