Commander in Chief (1990–2007) was a British thoroughbred racehorse, foaled in 1990 by Dancing Brave out of Slightly Dangerous. His damsire was the 1972 Epsom Derby winner Roberto, and his grandsire was Lyphard, a son of Northern Dancer.
Commander in Chief won the 1993 Epsom Derby ridden by jockey Michael Kinane, and beating the odds-on favorite Tenby. He was trained by Henry Cecil. He was an ususual winner because he had not raced as a two-year-old. Furthermore, the Racing Post hadn't even included him in their list of horses for the 1993 Ten-to-Follow on the flat competition.
Commander in Chief was voted the 1993 Cartier Three-Year-Old European Champion Colt.
In winning the Derby, he achieved something that had eluded his champion sire, Dancing Brave.
