Blue Buff got pounded at the windows late into 6-5 favoritism and ran to the money with a ‘TDN Rising Star’ performance at Gulfstream. Sporting a worktab lined with bullets from last summer at Monmouth as well as Palm Meadows this winter, Blue Buff was scrubbed on early to keep pace from third through a :23.50 quarter while traveling on the inside. He appeared to be spinning his wheels entering the turn, but found new life once tipped out into the three-path. The gray swept to the fore just inside the eighth pole and leveled off nicely from there to graduate going away by three lengths over fellow firster Copper Town (Speightstown). Blue Buff’s unraced dam, a half-sister to GSW Clamorosa (Seattle Dancer), had a colt by Graydar in 2015 and a colt by Will Take Charge in 2016. Sales History: $400,000 Ylg ‘15 KEESEP.
