What the Nation is saying about Buddy's Saint...

Bloodhorse.com reports that Buddy's Saint had to be euthanized after fracturing a shoulder during a workout.
Buddy’s Saint, a promising graded stakes winner that had been nearing a return to the races, broke down in a workout this morning on the Belmont Park main track and had to be euthanized.   The 3-year-old son of Saint Liam, trained by Bruce Levine, had a very impressive 2009 juvenile campaign in...Read More
Buddy’s Saint, winner of the Grade 2 Nashua and Grade 2 Remsen at Aqueduct last fall, turned in a bullet half-mile move over the main track at Belmont Saturday morning, covering the distance in 47.09, breezing.   Sidelined by an ankle chip in March following a troubled trip and disappointing n...Read More
Grade 1 Man o’War winner and dual Eclipse Award winner Gio Ponti headed a quartet of notable works for trainer Christophe Clement this morning, covering five furlongs in 1:01.06 around the dogs over the firm inner turf. Also going for Clement were Grade 1 Manhattan winner and Grade 2 Bowling Green r...Read More
Buddy's Saint, who was a leading 2-year-old last year before being knocked off this year's Triple Crown trail with an injury, recorded his first series of breezes since returning to training in Florida.Read More
What are the odds that there would be a tie at the top of any poll with 28 participating voters (unfortunately one of our voters was unable to weigh in this week)? Pretty good, it appears. Unlike other polls out there, the Paulick Derby Index shows a dead lock for first ...Read More
Buddy's Saint, winner of the Remsen (gr. II) and Nashua (gr. II) stakes, is off the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) trail after suffering a chip in his right front ankle following a workout at Gulfstream Park March 14, trainer Bruce Levine told The Blood-Horse. “He really didn’t work that well this morning, ...Read More
  • Bluelouwho · This bites. I was hoping he would rebound in one of the final preps and make the Derby. Maybe Saratoga is in his stars. I think Sidney's Candy becomes my rooting interest now (I was a huge Candy Ride fan). · 1492 days ago ·
While the top four stayed the same, there were some interesting developments in the Paulick Derby Index brought to you by Vinery LTD. The most obvious was Awesome Act’s giant leap to number nine in our poll. Last week, the British invader did not receive a single vote from our 29-vote panel. While A...Read More
The "mutuel field" was again installed as the 3-1 wagering choice when Pool 2 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager closed Sunday, March 7.  The future wager for the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) consists of 23 individual betting interests and the mutuel field comprised of all ot...Read More
The top three finishers from Saturday's Gotham S. (G3) -- AWESOME ACT (Awesome Again), YAWANNA TWIST (Yonaguska) and NACHO FRIEND (Friends Lake), respectively -- could all square off once again at Aqueduct in the April 3 Wood Memorial S. (G1). Gotham winner Awesome Act was bright and energetic in hi...Read More
Kentucky Derby watchers everywhere have passed the point of no return.  Inside of eight weeks, it is put up or shut up time.  Connections and horses are now in full scramble mode to prove that they have what it takes to make a serious run for the roses. Yesterday we saw impressive runs...Read More
It's amazing how one bad race--or in this case, a stroke of bad luck--can change the Kentucky Derby picture. Prior to the Fountain of Youth, many people had Buddy's Saint near the top of their Derby lists. Along with Lookin At Lucky, he was the most impressive 2-year-old in the country...Read More
Saturday might be a good time to kick off a two-prep campaign for the Derby. Last year Mine That Bird made his first start of the year Feb. 28, while the year previous Big Brown kicked things off March 5. Street Sense opened his two-prep slate in 2007 on March 17. Average them together and what do y...Read More
One of the things I really like about Steve Munday's Derby Dozen (editors note: I'm a participant so this is totally biased) is the use of the Roman Numeral for his bi-weekly Volumes. Now typically only Olympiads and Super Bowls are allowed to use this status, but I think it's cool that we have some...Read More
There are so many top 3-year-olds who still have questions to answer it makes it tough to come up with a list of 12 horses each week that you’re perfectly happy with.   There are always going to be horses you’d love to include who just haven’t done quite enough to warrant supplanting the more a...Read More
There are owners who go out and spend millions of dollars looking for a Kentucky Derby horse, and trainers who stockpile prospects in the hope that one of them gets there. Mike Machowsky does not have that luxury. He trains 15 horses. Not 15 3-year-olds. Fifteen horses. Yet of those 15, two - Caraco...Read More
Trainer Bruce Levine has all but ruled out any chance of making the Grade 1 Florida Derby here on March 20 with Buddy's Saint and will now focus on using the Grade 1 Wood Memorial two weeks later at Aqueduct for his 3-year-old's final Kentucky Derby prep. Buddy's Saint has not returned to the track ...Read More
“And they’re off in the 2010 Kentucky Derby, and it’s Rule going for the lead, followed closely by Super Saver, Eskendereya, and Discreetly Mine. Mission Impazible is right behind, with Interactif, Aikenite, Doubles Partner, and Connermara racing in midpack.”Read More
Kingfield Stable’s Buddy’s Saint was sent off the 9-to-5 favorite in Saturday’s $250,000 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park in his 3-year-old debut for trainer Bruce Levine. With regular jockey Jose Lezcano in the saddle, the colt ran into traffic in the first turn before...Read More

  • arazi · Wow, strong words, Cigar. But I do think you're on the right track. While you can throw the race out for Buddy's Saint, it's not a good sign that he didn't run a lick. And while we're talking FOY, let's not forget that EVERYTHING went Eskendereya's way. Great horse, but let's not forget that he sat second off a slow pace in a dream spot on the outside while two of the top players in the race were crunched in traffic trouble. · 1513 days ago ·
  • maverick · Buddy didnt get anything conditioning wide from the race, he will need tostep it up big timenext start. I believe he is talented enough todo just that.. If he doesn't, then and only then will i conceded he doesnt belong. · 1513 days ago ·
All of a sudden the Derby Trail just got a whole lot downer and derbier with several important preps being run yesterday. The theme of the day was Mr. Todd Pletcher, who scored with three Derby prep wins, topped by a scintilating score by Eskendereya. All of yesterday's preps...Read More
  • wickedstyle · Enjoyed the read - I was somewhat surprised to see you put Eskendereya at #2, not that I disagree after the FOY, but it still surprised me. No Vale of York? Just a Cali fluke? And also no love for Discreetly Mine? · 1515 days ago ·
  • cigar · Eskendereya's Fountain of Youth is by the far the best performance any 3-year-old has put on the track this year. He should be #1. · 1513 days ago ·
