Eight year old Commodore Al won his 8th race at the Vaal over 2400m on 15 November 2016. Another well judged ride by in form Jockey Craig Zackey he produced “The Old Man” at the right time and kept him going to win a competitive race. Congratulations to owner Matilda Konstantatou and breeders Klawervlei Stud.
The seven year old Commodore Al showed his younger rivals, his age is no problem, when he finished with a sustained run to win the marathon event at Turffontein, on the 24 July 2016 over 2600m. Stable companion Dynamite Jim led the contest and set good fractions under jockey Craig Zackey, whilst stable rider Andrew Fortune had Commodore Al well placed throughout. When asked for an effort Commodore Al finished strongly to win going away and win his seventh race out of 46 starts. There may still be a bit more in the tank for him. Congratulations to owner Matilda Konstantatou & breeders Klawervlei Stud.
