Buffering has continued his flawless spring carnival campaign to win the 2012 Schillaci Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse last Saturday October 13, 2012.
The five-year-old won the 2012 Schillaci Stakes by almost two lengths ahead of Golden Archer, who finished second, and Stirling Grove, who passed the post in third.
Buffering has now won 11 of his 28 race starts and has earned more than $1.94 million in prize money during his horse racing career.
The Mossman gelding will now go on towards the 2012 Manikato Stakes on October 26, where he will attempt to win his first group 1 race.
Buffering will then go to the $1 million Patinack Farm Classic at Flemington Racecourse on November 10, 2012.
He will then possibly be travelled overseas for an international racing campaign.
Trainer Robert Heathcote was thrilled with Buffering’s latest race win in the 2012 Schillaci Stakes.
”We know Black Caviar and Hay List are not here and my little bulldog has lived in their shadows for sometime, but the opportunity is there for him to put his hand up and say I am the number one sprinter in this country – until she comes back, of course,” Heathcote said.
“I will discuss running abroad with the owners.
“Perth and Hong Kong are still very much viable options after Melbourne.”
