Buffering has worn well

The years have not wearied Buffering, at eight years of age he is far from a spent force as was shown with another Group 1 success in the Winterbottom Stakes at Ascot W A.

That was his sixth win at highest level Group1, it gets no better than that, he is now heading home to Brisbane, next port of call is the Gold Coast for the $10 million race day in early January.

Dubai is now in the pecking order as well, with the lure of the $1 million Al Quoz Sprint over 1000 metres, the same distance of his latest win, the Winterbottom Stakes.

A visit to Royal Ascot could also be included for the major sprint races in July of next year, when the horse in on the eve of his ninth birthday.

The years have not wearied him to this stage, the heart may be strong but the timber can weaken.

Surely his sire, Mossman, is entitled to the appropriate accolades, he is now 20 years of age, he won just a shade under $1 million during his racing career.

Mossman has sired 19 Stakes winners, with five at Group 1 level, Buffering the highest stake earner, $5,788,900 to his credit, and Mossfun, the Golden Slipper heroine, a dual Stakes success.


Myboycharlie Sires Oaks Winner

Jameka provided her sire, Myboycharlie, with his third Group 1 success in winning the Crown Oaks.

She was always going to be the Spring filly after she defeated the boys in the Autumn, winning the Sires Produce Stakes over 1400 metres.

The Vase, at Moonee Valley, was the sealer; she defeated the colts again, which included the ultimate Derby winner, Tarzino, the best staying colt in the land.

It was a big lift for her sire, Myboycharlie, as well, with the annual yearling’s sales not that far away, and winning races is still the best advertisement.

Whilst being Irish bred, Myboycharlie was rated the champion colt in France after his brilliant win in the prestigious Group1 Prix Morny over the straight 1200 metres at Deauville, a popular racing venue on the Normandy coast line.

His progeny appear to be best suited if given time, as was shown with Jameka, her target now will be the Sydney Oaks.

She can certainly run a good solid 2400 metres, thoughts could ultimately be a Caulfield Cup prospect in 12 months time, at least the trip should not be any worry.

Myboycharlie is by Danetime from Dulceata, his maternal grand sire, Rousillon, was brilliant at a mile (1600 metres), he won seven times at that distance.

While Myboycharlie was the flag bearer at Flemington, Kentucky Derby winner, Big Brown, was doing his bit for the cause, siring Neverland, a winner at Ascot WA.

Big Brown Looking At A Stakes Winner

Big Brown, a Classic winner himself having won two Derbies, is now on the fringe of siring his first Classic winner in Australia, when Dawnie Perfect steps out in the Oaks in just under three weeks.

She was bred, and is raced by John Singleton, trained by Clarrie Connors at Warwick Farm and ridden by Jim Cassidy, a proven winning trio.

Clarrie was on the missing list on Saturday, son Mark did the honours, however, you can take short odds, positions will be reversed on Oaks day.

Besides his Caulfield winner in Dawnie Perfect, Big Brown was also responsible for siring Frank Heavens at Murray Bridge, he scored pretty well over 1600 metres.

Dawnie Perfect appears as if she will get the of 2400 metres of the Oaks, she came from a fair way back in the Ethereal Stakes, the win was a strong pointer for the Classic.

Her sire, Big Brown, who stands at Vinery in the Hunter Valley, had a field day, at Randwick on Saturday, when the stud’s sires were represented with four winners on the nine race card.

More Than Ready, one of those remarkable sires that goes from strength to strength, he sired the second winner of the day, Montauk, and completed a double with Nayeli in the last race.

Dothraki completed a good win for the Snowden partnership, Peter and Paul, following on the success rate for Mossman; he is having another good season proving a very reliable sire.

Husson, the unbeaten South American champion, has been on a winning streak of late, the third of Vinery’sires to get a winner at Randwick when Moral Victory scored for Tim Martin.

Buffering Loves The Valley

Buffering’s love affair with the Valley is set to continue after his third win in the Group 1 Moir Stakes at his favourite haunt, Moonee Valley.

He has already built up a cult following, the crowds love him to a man and he loves them, he is king pin at the Valley.

Buffering has been a great money spinner for his group of owners, he has returned $5,154, 866 in prize money from his 17 wins, and has a date on Cox Plate eve in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes over 1200 metres.

The aged gelding doesn’t accept defeat; he gives of his best at all times as was seen in winning the Moir Stakes.

He is simply a tough old gelding; he has raced in almost every state yet has a certain love affair with Moonee Valley that is where he really shines.

Now in his 20th year Mossman has sired five Group 1 winners, including Buffering of course, and the high quality filly, Mossfun, last year’s Golden Slipper Stakes success.

Overall he has sired 19 winners of Group races 11 Listed winners and over 372 winners earning $45,970,044.

Mossman is by the Breeders Cup success, Success Express; he has proved a versatile sire with progeny winning in six countries.
