A top filly in the 1980’s, superstar Mom’s Command (Top Command - Star Mommy, by Pia Star) didn’t receive the recognition she deserved during her days on the track due to her slow closing fractions and her quote “moderate” competition. However, in her career debut, she was sent off at 44-1 odds in the Faneuil Miss Stakes and won by a head after a poor break. This was her first stakes victory and not her last either- in her sixteen lifetime starts, she always started a stakes race. She was then delivered from Rockingham to Suffolk Downs where she captured her second stakes win- the Priscilla Stakes. Her first look at defeat was in her first graded race, the G1 Spinaway Stakes. Command was back in the winners circle in no time, taking the G2 Astarita Stakes. Her next start was he G1 Frizette Stakes, but she was off the win by two horses due to being rushed into a big lead and fading to third. Her regular rider, Abigail Fuller, was taken off the mount for the G1 Selima Stakes, and instead, Gregg McCarron piloted her to victory. In the G1 Hollywood Starlet Stakes, Abby returned to business as per usual but ending up running fifth aboard her mighty mare. Thankfully, 1985 opened on a brighter note with a nineteen length romp in the Flirtation Stakes, which was followed by a second place finish in the Goldfinch Handicap. The Cherry Blossom Handicap, which came after the Goldfinch, kicked off a five race win streak which included New York’s Triple Crown for fillies. The G3 Comely Stakes was race number two- a race she won by 4 1/2 lengths over Lady’s Secret. Then it was the Triple Tiara, beginning with the G1 Acorn Stakes. In the process, she beat champion Outstandingly and undefeated Le L’Argent, plus past and future G1 winners. Next up on Command’s to do list was the G1 Mother Goose Stakes two weeks later, which according to the media, she just “hung on to the win”, when in reality, at first asking, she opened a 5 1/2 length lead when the competition came closing in. Certainly, Command capturing the final leg, the G1 Coaching Club American Oaks, and fitting her tiara on her head would prove all the naysayers wrong, right? Wrong. The press

“All of us have either heard of or met jockeys who have had serious injuries whether they be brain injuries, spinal injuries, or even deaths…we all know it’s a very real possibility, and that it’s significantly more a matter of luck than skill or decision making.” Jenn Miller is a jockey out of Laurel Park, Maryland recovering from a devastating racing accident that left her with a broken jaw and concussion. Now, Miller is balancing recovery with activism by taking the #MyLegacyPledge to donate her brain to the Concussion Legacy Foundation. Read her story at the link in our bio.
