Classic-Placed Commissioner Sold To Stand In Saudi Arabia

Commissioner, a Grade 2 winner who was narrowly defeated in the 2014 Belmont Stakes, has been sold to Prince Saud bin Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud and will be relocated to Saudi Arabia, BloodHorse reports.

The 9-year-old son of A.P. Indy previously stood at WinStar Farm in Versailles, Ky., where he was advertised for a fee of $7,500. His first foals are 3-year-olds of 2020, led by Grade 3 winner Island Commish and Grade 2-placed Powerfulattraction.

Commissioner won five of 15 starts during his on-track career as a homebred for WinStar, earning $962,237. He entered the mix among the nation’s top 3-year-olds in 2014 with a third-place effort in the G3 Sunland Derby. Two starts later, he finished second in the G2 Peter Pan Stakes, then ran a heartbreaking head behind Tonalist in the Belmont Stakes after leading at every point of call prior to the finish.

The colt came back at four to win the G3 Skip Away Stakes and Pimlico Special Stakes. He ended his career with a win in the G2 Hawthorne Gold Cup Handicap.

Andrew Cary of Cary Bloodstock brokered the deal.
