Buffering Has Black Caviar In Sights
Meanwhile, if Buffering can finish first or second in tonight's $1 million Gr1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley he will become the richest sprinter in Australian racing history, eclipsing the mark set by champion mare Black Caviar. With total earnings of $7,236,458, Buffering currently sits in second spot on the all-time prize money list for Australian sprinters behind Black Caviar with $7,364,462. With the Manikato offering prize money for first of $600,000 and $180,000 for second, Buffering need only finish in the top two to pass the great mare. It is worth noting that Chautauqua is not far behind that leading duo. His prize money tally places him in third spot with $6,499,243 million, while the globetrotting Takeover Target has been relegated to fourth position with $5.9 million.
