Thoroughbred Conformation with Meg Levy and Bobby Flay [03:22]

Speakers were Meg Levy of Bluewater Sales, racehorse owner and chef Bobby Flay, Hall of Fame horse trainer D. Wayne Lukas and Case Clay of Three Chimneys Farm. In the video Levy talks about how horse buyers try to predict a horse's potential for performance as Flay adds commentary. The colt in question is now know as Duca, an Empire Maker/Tempus Fugit colt from Briland Farms. Recorded on August 8, 2009 using a Flip Video camera.

New York Watch: Flashpoint [01:28]
While Flashpoint may not always be the best behaved colt, he certainly has speed, which he demonstrated today with a sharp debut victory at Aqueduct Racetrack. He becomes the first horse in 2011 to join the New York Watch list, which profiles up-and-comers that have recently cleared the maiden ranks at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga Race Course. Away alertly from post position one, Flashpoint cleared on the lead and was tracked by odds-on favorite Simba's Story through fractions of 22.89 and 45.98. Jockey Cornelio Velasquez shook the reins at Flashpoint as they turned for home, and the colt answered by drawing away to a 6 ¼-length score, completing the six furlongs on the inner track in 1:09.68. "He's a big, strapping colt and is as strong as a bull," said John Fort, president of Peachtree Stable, the operation that owns Flashpoint. "He's not a hyper horse. He won't flip on top of you, but he will run right over you." Fort bought Flashpoint, a 3-year-old son of two-time Grade 1-winning sprinter Pomeroy, for $100000 at the 2009 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. "He was probably the last thing I was looking for because I usually don't buy sprinters," said Fort. "He was kind of a big bully as a yearling, but you could tell that he was going to grow into that frame. I decided to take a shot on a horse that was different than the type I usually buy, which is usually more of a classic-type horse." Even though Fort saw the colt misbehave before he entered into the sales ...

New York Watch: Buffum [02:04]
The progeny of Bernardini created a lot of buzz in the sales ring as yearlings, with three selling for over $1 million. One member of that trio, Buffum, has joined the New York Watch, which profiles up-and-comers that have recently cleared the maiden ranks at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga, after winning his debut today at Belmont. Buffum -- purchased for $1.2 million at the 2009 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling sale by Darley Stable, which bred and campaigned Bernardini, the 2006 Champion Three-Year-Old Colt -- went off at 8-1 and raced three lengths off the lead in fourth as Rock Hard Nicky set solid fractions of 22.40 and 45.54. After taking over with three-eighths left, Buffum was set down by David Cohen in upper stretch, drifted out under left-handed urging inside the final furlong, and was all out to hold off Cool Blue Red Hot by a nose. Buffum, who completed the one-mile distance in 1:36.85, was 7 ¼ lengths clear of longshot third-place finisher Acadian Blues. "We had high expectations for him before the race with him being by a champion horse," said trainer Tom Albertrani, who also conditioned the colt's sire. "His works were always promising, and we were expecting to see him run as well as he did today." Despite the small margin of victory, Albertrani believes Buffum has a promising future. "It looked like the horse was traveling very smoothly and easily down the backside," said Albertrani. "He took the lead quite easily and managed to hold off a late charge ...
