VALID POINT (c, 3, Scat Daddy–Goldbud, by Buddha), a $140,000 KEESEP yearling, was sent off the 8-5 favorite. Jostled and shuffled in traffic in the early strides, the bay raced keenly along the rail and was steadied off heels entering the backstretch. Tipped out a path for clear running room, the bay pulled his way into contention, ranged up three wide into the stretch and drew clear late despite racing greenly to win by one length. Bar Harbor (Orb), who lacked running room in the stretch, closed for second. Goldbud is a half-sister to Grade I winner Santa Teresita (Lemon Drop Kid). She produced a filly by Orb in 2018 and was bred back to Connect. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $25,800.
