The quarter horse, BCR Buds For All, won the Portland Meadows quarter horse race Monday. This 5-year-old American Quarter Horse is owned by Jeff Steadman of Blackfoot.

Steadman bought Buddy as a weinlingâ€”a 5-month-old coltâ€”from Billingsley Creek Ranch.
Buddy was bred for running, Steadman said. Buddy is now 5 years old. Monday's race was Buddy's 26th. He has won seven starts.
