Four-time Gr.1 – winning Queensland sprinter Buffering (Mossman – Action Annie, by Anabaa) is back in work preparing the Gr.1 Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley on October 2, reports AAP.

Trainer Robert Heathcote is also hoping that Buffering can become the first horse to claim four Queensland Horse of The Year titles since the introduction of the awards in 1971.

“People seem to forget Buffering was the only Queensland horse to win a Group One race this season. It was in the Moir Stakes when he beat Lankan Rupee and his other spring runs were very good,” Heathcote said. “He is coming along for another campaign.”

The consistent 7yo gelding has had 16 career wins and has amassed over $4.8 million in winnings.
