Mr. Buff’s Haynesfield Effort Earns 106 Beyer, Open Company Race May Be Next

Chester and Mary Broman’s Mr. Buff came out of his impressive 20-length score in Saturday’s $100,000 Haynesfield in good order, according to the accomplished New York-bred’s connections on Sunday morning.

Mr. Buff registered his third straight stakes win and sixth in his last eight starts, dueling Syndergaard along the backstretch before powering away from the field to easily capture the one-turn mile on a fast track, completing the course in 1:36.22.

The John Kimmel trainee is 2-for-2 to start his 6-year-old campaign, building on a five-length score in the Jazil on January 25 at Aqueduct Racetrack. For his Haynesfield victory, Mr. Buff equaled his personal-best Beyer Speed Figure at 106.

“He looked great this morning. He’s always the same after the race,” said Kimmel assistant Jorge Munoz on Sunday. “After the race, he looked like he didn’t do anything. They were going fast and they were going in 45, 1:10 and 1:36.”

Kimmel said he’ll consider going back to open company next out, with the Grade 3, $200,000 Westchester on May 2 at Belmont Park as a potential next spot for the Friend or Foe gelding. He also left open the possibility of the Grade 2, $1 million Oaklawn Handicap on April 16 at Oaklawn Park.
