Commissioner delivers as favorite in Pimlico Special


BALTIMORE – Commissioner displayed enough precocity early in his 3-year-old year to be given a shot at the Triple Crown races, and he came awfully close to winning one of them. But trainer Todd Pletcher always thought he’d be better as he got older, and Commissioner is seemingly in the best form of his life right now at age 4, with consecutive stakes wins, including a dominant victory Friday in the Grade 3, $300,000 Pimlico Special at Pimlico.
