Buddy's Saint (foaled 2007 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Sired by Saint Liam, a Breeders' Cup Classic winner who also won the Eclipse Award as the 2005 Horse of the Year, he is out of the mare Tuzia by Blushing John. He was sold in the 2008 Keeneland September yearling sale for $100,000.

Two Year Old Campaign

In his first race, going 6 1/2 furlongs at Belmont Park, Buddy's Saint was first to cross the wire, but was disqualified and placed second for bumping another horse in the stretch.

His next start was in the Grade 2 1 mile Nashua Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack. Buddy's Saint outdueled odds-on favorite Tobaggon Slide and ran away with a 12-length victory under a hand ride by Jose Lezcano. His final time of 1:35 3/5 on a fast track earned a Beyer Speed Figure of 101. [1]

Three weeks later, Buddy's Saint went off as the favorite from the 4th post in the Grade 2 1 1/8 miles Remsen Stakes. Also in the race were Homeboykris, winner of the Grade 1 Champagne Stakes and Citrus Kid, winner of the Dover Stakes. Buddy's Saint passed pacesetters Homeboykris and Citrus Kid on the turn and coasted to an easy 4 3/4 lengths victory over 20-1 longshot Peppi Knows.

In December 2009, he was shipped to Gulfstream Park to prepare for his 3-year old campaign. He is considered a favorite for the 2010 Kentucky Derby.[2]

Three Year Old Campaign

Buddy's Saint's three-year-old season got off to a very rough start, literally, when he had severe trouble while running a very disappointing ninth in the Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park which was won by Eskendereya. Buddy's Saint is still expected to point to the Florida Derby with the Kentucky Derby the ultimate goal.
