The splits recorded by Buzz Nightmare for the Gold Cup win were: 23.2 x 45.4 x 1:10.1.

On May 14, coming down the five-straight course in Sarge Bucknor Trophy with Ian Spence in the saddle, Buzz Nightmare clocked a very fast 57.1 seconds after blazing splits of 22.2 x 44.1.

Overall Buzz Nightmare raced 17 times. He won 10 times, finished second once, and was unplaced the other six occasions he entered the starting gates at Caymanas Park.

He leaves for the breeding farm having earned $5,571,000. He was trained by Philip Feanny and is owned by 2 Penyou.
