Deputy Commander is by the 1996 St Leger winner Shantou. He is a two times winner over jumps having recorded victories at Doncaster and Uttoxeter. Standing at around 16.3hh he was at the yard whilst a home was found for his retirement.
The Commander is a gentle giant of a horse, with a lovely nature. Everyone who has worked with him since his arrival has fallen in love with him!
However, on the racecourse Commander had the heart of a lion and you can watch him race and win over fences at Doncaster here.
