2YO COMBINATION Places in Gulfstream’s Buffalo Man S. in Second Start

Coming off a 5 3/4-length Maiden Special Weight win in his debut at Gulfstream Park West in mid-October (pictured), COMBINATION jumped right into stakes competition and placed in Gulfstream Park’s six-furlong Buffalo Man S., finishing four lengths in front of the next horse. The 2-year-old colt from the second crop of ALTERNATION became his sire’s ninth Blacktype performer of the year, which includes Graded stakes winners SERENGETI EMPRESS and LIMATION. Lifetime record: 2-1-0-1, $31,350. O-Jonathan I. Green. B-Jean N. Cravens. T-Joe Orseno.
