Top notch performance – AGAIN – from the Robert Heathcote trained sprinter, Buffering who captured the Group Two Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday night after leading throughout.
It was the fourth Group victory for Buffering who has placed in no less than six Group Ones and is surely overdue for victory at our most elite level. Perhaps this spring?
But Buffering is not the only one that’s seen action this spring … so to speak. His dam, Action Annie, was covered by exciting young sire, Love Conquers All, earlier this month and is at the vanguard of what is a sensational book for the former Hawkes trained speedster.
It makes sense … both Buffering (below winning the Moir) and Love Conquers All are by Mossman, both are top class sprinters and, while it’s more synergistic than pedigree driven, Buffering was foaled at the now Eliza Park Queensland where Love Conquers All stands.
Encouragingly, the first batch of mares covered by Love Conquers All have been tested in foal, one of which includes the Marscay mare, Prima, who has missed in eight of her last 10 seasons.
You’ll be hoping that one sticks … Prima is a half sister to legendary Kiwi stallion, Zabeel.
