Deputy Commander’s sensational racemare Grab Your Heart electrified the Japanese racing scene in taking this Graded event by a remarkable 10 lengths!  Sent off as the heavy 3/5 favorite based on her multiple stakes winning resume, she did not disappoint her backers in turning the tough race into a laugher.  A $290,000 Keeneland April 2yo purchase, Grab Your Heart has now earned over $1.6 million for her connections in establishing herself as one of Japan’s most exciting racemares!  With six stakes winners and over $3 Million in earnings for 2005, Grade 1 stakes winner/producer Deputy Commander has continued to establish himself as a proven sire of top racehorses…with perhaps his best days ahead: his 2003 and 2004 books included 114 and 120 top quality mares respctively, meaning his juvenile crops of the next two years with be absolutely stocked with potential!

Congratulations to owner Kazuko Yoshida, breeders Mr and Mrs Dreabon Copeland, trainer Y. Hatakeyama and jockey K. Ando!
