West Point Thoroughbreds' Commanding Curve has been retired from racing and will begin retraining for a second career with Olympic level three-day event rider Phillip Dutton, according to a May 24 release.
Dutton, friends with Ring Weekend's trainer Graham Motion, joined this partnership to get involved in racing with a high caliber horse like the multiple graded stakes winning son of Tapit.
Thoroughbred Charities of America will honor Graham and Anita Motion with the Allaire duPont Leadership Award and CANTER with the TCA Industry Service Award at the Select Stallion Season Auction Jan. 10 in Lexington.
