Buffering Wins Gr2 Schillaci Stakes
Gr1-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed Vinery Stud stallion Mossman (Success Express-Lichen Lady, by Twig Moss) added a Gr2 success when 5YO gelding Buffering (Mossman-Action Annie, by Anabaa) scored by 1.75-lengths for trainer Robert Heathcote in the $220,000 Gr2 Schillaci Stakes (1000m), over 4YO entire Golden Archer (Rock of Gibraltar–Viennetta, by Pins) & fellow 5YO gelding Stirling Grove (Mossman–Kalamata, by Desert Prince). Backing up from his recent Gr2 AJ Moir Stakes victory at Moonee Valley, Buffering (a $22,000 yearling at the 2009 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) took his record to 11 wins (now 5 at Group level) & 11 placings (6 Gr1s) from 28 starts for $1,963,900 earnings.
