Buddha, a grade I winner by Unbridled's Song, has arrived for stallion stud at Dr. William J. Solomon's Pin Oak Lane Farm near New Freedom, Pa. He formerly stood at John Sikura's Hill 'n' Dale Farms near Lexington. His 2008 fee is $5,000.
In 2007, Buddha was represented by stakes winners Buddha Lady, Glorification, and Hisse. His progeny earnings of $1,789,036 last year placed him among Pennsylvania's leading sires. A 9-year-old, Buddha also is the sire of three stakes-placed runners, including grade III-placed Lenaro.
Buddha won all three of his starts at 3, including the Wood Memorial Stakes (gr. I). He is out of the Storm Catmare Cahooters and his third dam is a half-sister to the great Damascus.
