Brigade Commander
Foaled: March 21, 2007
Sire: Stormy Atlantic
Dam: Sariano by Rubiano

Brigade Commander may have possessed more potential than any purchase by Royal Colors Racing to date. His first race for RCR was in December 2009, a $43,000 Maiden Special at the Fair Grounds. He went off the 8:5 favorite after recording blistering workouts including a half mile 47.0 seconds, 1 of 51 performance and a five furlong 59.6, 1of 21 breeze. With a win we were prepared to put forward an early nomination for the $750,000 Grade 2 Louisiana Derby. Unfortunately, after taking the lead in the stretch he switched leads and chipped his left knee. The arthroscopic chip removal was uneventful and his return to training in mid-2010 indicated he had not missed a beat as his first recorded work was a 47.2 second four furlong breeze. However, he once again chipped the same knee.

Brigade Commander’s competitive spirit was such that we owed him the opportunity to not only race, but win. After a second rehabilitation, his second and final start for RCR was in December 2010 where he went off the 1:1 favorite and won by more than six lengths. Brigade Commander was claimed at that time for $12,500, but not before an appearance in the winner’s circle.
Brigade Commander has been sold and is no longer available for syndication.
