Oaklawn: Commander gives Jones sweep


Commander($6.60) gave his trainer, Larry Jones, a sweep of the two allowances on the card Thursday when he was just up to win the 10th race over Expecting Cash. Calvin Borel was aboard Commander, who races for Fox Hill Farm. Jones also won the ninth with Shelly's Hope, under Gabriel Saez.

Commander stalked the pace along the inside Thursday, had to wait behind horses on final turn, then angled out in the stretch and covered a mile in 1:38.22. It was the second career win for the horse, who is a Triple Crown nominee by Broken Vow.
