After a raft of scratches late on, Northern Invader was sent off as the 4/6 chalk, but it was the Steve Asmussen-trained Gigante who emerged victorious as he romped to a four-and-a-half length win.

He had been a winner of the 2023 Caesars Handicap when a 33/1 shock winner and followed that later in the year by taking the 2023 Secretariat Stakes at Colonial Downs in August at another huge price of 22/1.

After this latest victory in the 2023 Commonwealth Turf Stakes, handicappers may start to take notice of this Steve Asmussen Colt.

This victory means the horse has now earned over $900,000 in purse money.

During the race, he stalked the pace and settled sweetly in fourth as Smokey Mandate, Wild Sean, and J.P. Race set the speed.
