Buddy&rsquo;s Saint, one of the leading 2-year-old males of 2009, suffered a fractured shoulder during a morning workout Sunday at Belmont Park and had to be euthanized, trainer Bruce Levine confirmed Sunday afternoon.\r\nBuddy&rsquo;s Saint, who won the Nashua and Remsen - both Grade 2 stakes - as a 2-year-old, was working his way back to the races after a chip in his right front ankle sidelined him in the spring. Levine said Sunday&rsquo;s work was to be the last for Buddy&rsquo;s Saint before he was scheduled to return in the $60,000 Groovy Stakes next Sunday at Aqueduct.\r\nLevine said Buddy&rsquo;s Saint was working out of the gate in company with another horse when exercise rider Jesus Romero &ldquo;said he heard a crack,&rdquo; Levine said. &ldquo;He said he never heard anything like it. I&rsquo;m not sure I ever had one break his shoulder.&rdquo;\r\nBuddy&rsquo;s Saint was euthanized on the track. Romero was taken to a local hospital where he was later released without any series injuries, according to Levine.\r\nLevine, 55, said Buddy&rsquo;s Saint was doing &ldquo;better than ever&rdquo; and that &ldquo;by far&rdquo; this is the worst loss he has suffered in his 31 years as a trainer. Buddy&rsquo;s Saint was owned by Eli Lomita, who purchased the colt as a yearling for $100,000 at the Keeneland September sale in 2008.\r\nPHOTOS: Barbara Livingston remembers Buddy's Saint\r\nSunday&rsquo;s work was the 12th for Buddy&rsquo;s Saint since he returned to the work tab on Aug. 28 at Jimmy Crupi&rsquo;s farm in Ocala, Fla. Buddy&rsquo;s Saint had been sidelined since mid-March when he sustained a chip in his right front ankle following a workout at Gulfstream Park in preparation for a start in the Florida Derby.\r\nAt 2, Buddy&rsquo;s Saint won his debut, but was disqualified for interference. He then won the Nashua by 12 lengths and the Remsen by 4 3/4 lengths, establishing himself as one of the leading Kentucky Derby contenders for 2010. Buddy&rsquo;s Saint made his 3-year-old debut in the Fountain of Youth on Feb. 20 at Gulfstream Park and got bumped early on and finished ninth of 10.
