For his efforts, Field Commission won the Canadian Champion Male Sprint Horse Sovereign Award that year.

“I was very impressed,” jockey Manoel Cruz said. “The trainer told me to keep the horse busy and make sure he was closer than usual. So when he broke, I gave him a couple of kisses and asked him to go, and he took his position perfectly.”
