Kingfield Stables’ Buddy’s Saint continued preparation for his highly-anticipated 3-year-old debut Saturday morning at Gulfstream Park as he breezed five furlongs in 1:01 for trainer Bruce Levine ahead of his engagement in the $250,000 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) going 1 1/8 miles here on Sat., Feb. 20.

A son of 2005 Donn Handicap (G1) winner and Horse of the Year Saint Liam, Buddy’s Saint finished first in all three of his starts as a 2-year-old last year (disqualified in debut), romping home a 12 lengths winner of the Nashua Stakes (G2) going a mile on Nov. 7 and the nine-furlong Remsen Stakes (G2) at 1 1/8 miles last out on Nov. 28 by 4 ¾ lengths.

Also prominent on the Gulfstream work tab Saturday morning were three older horses – Carol Nyren’s Dry Martini earning the ’bullet’ for five furlongs with a clocking of 58 3/5 for trainer Barclay Tagg, Alex and Joann Lieblong and partners’ Duke of Mischief over the same distance in 1:00 flat for trainer David Fawkes and Fred Bradley’s Brass Hat going three furlongs in 36 for trainer William ‘Buff’ Bradley.

Dry Martini is a 7-year-old gelding by Slew Gin Fizz and is nominated for the $500,000 Donn Handicap (G1) here next Saturday. Duke of Mischief, a 4-year-old son of Graeme Hall, is almost nominated. He was entered in this afternoon’s $300,000 Sunshine Millions Turf but scratched.

Brass Hat is a 9-year-old gelding by Prized and was posting his first recorded workout since finishing second by a half-length in the Stars and Stripes Handicap (G3) at Arlington Park on Sept. 7. Brass Hat scored the biggest victory of his career here winning the 2006 Donn Handicap before finishing second in the Dubai World Cup (G1) a month later, although he was subsequently disqualified.
