The combination of Nash Rawiller and Commander lived up to the hype as the combination proved too good at Randwick over 1550m.
There had been plenty of talk about Rawiller being an ideal match for the Pierro gelding and supporters were not disappointed. Rawiller rode a positive but patient race, sitting in second place and cuddling Commander into the straight before he popped the question at the 300m mark and raced away for a game success.
After an honest campaign Commander now heads to the paddock for some deserved R&R.
Congratulations to owners Waratah Thoroughbreds!
