Notes from Abroad

Several Godolphin competitors worth mentioning from Thursday’s UAE-G3 2000 Guineas at Meydan, including the Bernardini colt Buffum—who finished 20 lengths back of To Honor and Serve in last November’s G2 Remsen—he didn’t fare much better, running fifth, but only about 3 lengths behind the winner Splash Point (bred, incidentally, by red-hot WinStar who brought back their Fantasy Derby contest this year). Splash Point is likeable, being out of the Danehill mare Dianehill who was G2-placed at 8.5 furlongs; his second dam is the great Breeders’ Cup Sprint champion Very Subtle.
