At Moonee Valley last Friday night, Gr1-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed Vinery Studstallion Mossman (Success Express-Lichen Lady, by Twig Moss) celebrated a Gr1 triumph when 8YO gelding Buffering (Mossman-Action Annie, by Anabaa) scored by 0.4-length for trainer Robert Heathcote in the $450,000 Gr1 Moir Stakes (1000m) at wfa for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Ball Of Muscle (Dubawi-Parfore, by Gold Brose) & 6YO mare Angelic Light (Holy Roman Emperor-Flashed, by Fuji Kiseki). The result was remarkable for evergreen Buffering on three fronts: it was his first start since injuring himself last December in the Gr1 Longines Hong Kong Sprint at Sha Tin, his first victory since winning this race last year, and also gave him de facto ownership of the Moonee Valley dash: from 4 starts in the race (elevated to Gr1 status in 2013), Buffering has recorded 3 wins and a runner-up. Buffering was a $22,000 purchase by Paul Willetts at the 2009 Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale from the draft of Racetree. Including his Moir Stakes domination, his record now stands at 17 wins (also including the Gr1 Winterbottom Stakes, Gr1 VRC Sprint Classic, Gr1 Manikato Stakes, Gr2 BRC Victory Stakes, Gr2 Schillaci Stakes,, Gr2 Roman Consul Stakes & Gr3 Ian McEwen Stakes) & 17 placings (including the Gr1 BTC Cup, Gr1 AJ Moir Stakes, Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap - twice, Gr1 Doomben 10,000 - thrice, Gr1 William Reid, Gr1 Newmarket, Gr1 Lightning T.J. Smith Stakes & Gr1 Patinack Classic) from 47 starts for $5,145,781 earnings.
