Buffering Wins 2012 AJ Moir Stakes – Race Results

September 29th, 2012

Buffering has won the Group 2 AJ Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley Racecourse last night September 28, 2012.

The five-year-old won the race by 0.2 of a length ahead of Ready To Rip, who made a late charge to threaten Buffering’s lead down the final straight.

Thankgodyou’rehere put in a gallant run to finish third, while Tiger Tees placed in fourth.

Buffering has now won 10 of his 27 race starts and has earned more than $1.8 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

Trainer Robert Heathcote was thrilled with the result.

“He’s wonderful little horse, really wonderful,” Heathcote said.

“Horses like him make us trainers look like we know what we’re doing.”

Buffering is nominated for the Group 1 Manikato Stakes and Patinack Farm Classic later this spring.

He will head to the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes next start in what will be his second spring race start of his campaign.

“His goal from the beginning of this campaign has been the Schillaci, but after he galloped that day I realised he was more forward than I thought,” Heathcote said.

“So we came here and it’s been fantastic.”

Buffering will strive to be recognized as the premier sprinter in the country after spending the majority of his career running second behind Hay List and Black Caviar in the major Group 1 races.
