Maiden winner at Monmouth for Deputy Commander

Monmouth Park, $37,000 MSW, 1 1/16 turf.

FORMAL COMMANDER finished second at Delaware in his only other start on the turf on 7/31, but ran a disappointing 6th when his 8/18 race at Saratoga was taken off the turf.  Backed as the second choice here, he was bumped at the start but settled in mid pack, rallied through on the rail down the stretch and out finished the favorite to win by a neck.
