Commanding Curve is a Master Command and Mother colt who finished 3rd in the G2 Louisiana Derby. With a few more prep races on the calendar, he will likely get bumped down the leaderboard if his connections decide not to run him in one of them.

He took a bump right after the start in the Louisiana Derby by Rise Up but it's hard to say exactly how that impacted him. Commanding Curve is a late runner and may handle longer distances better. His connections may opt to hold him out until the Belmont instead of running him in Kentucky.
