Buffering Wins Gr1 Manikato Stakes

Monday, 28th October 2013

At Moonee Valley, Gr1-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed Vinery Stud stallion Mossman (Success Express-Lichen Lady, by Twig Moss) added a Gr1 triumph when 6YO gelding Buffering (Mossman-Action Annie, by Anabaa) scored by 0.1-length for trainer Robert Heathcote in the $1 million Gr1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, over Hong Kong galloper and fellow 6YO gelding Lucky Nine (Dubawi-Birjand, by Green Desert) & 4YO entire Sessions (Lonhro-Seances, by Canny Lad). This was a thoroughly deserved maiden Gr1 victory for Buffering that took his record to 13 wins (including the Gr2 BRC Victory Stakes, Gr2 Schillaci Stakes, Gr2 AJ Moir Stakes, Gr2 Roman Consul Stakes & Gr3 Ian McEwen Stakes) & 14 placings (including the Gr1 AJ Moir Stakes, Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap - twice, Gr1 Doomben 10,000 - twice, Gr1 William Reid, Gr1 Newmarket, Gr1 Lightning & Gr1 Patinack Classic) from 36 starts for $3,208,400 earnings.
