Buffering has proven too good for his five rivals in today’s Coca Cola Amatil Weight For Age Handicap at Eagle Farm racecourse, which was the substitute race for the 2012 Victory Stakes.
The four-year-old gelding sprinted to an early lead and was never caught as he flew down the final straight to post victory by a seven length margin.
Scenic Blast finished in second placing, while Moneysaver ran home for third position.
Adebisi, who was second favourite after his Listed Bribie Stakes win last start, appeared to break down before the home turn.
Jockey Chris Munce seemed to be looking down at Adebisi’s offside foreleg as he cantered down the final straight to finish in last position.
There has been no news as yet as to whether Adebisi did in fact sustain a leg injury during the race.
Buffering will now go on to run in the Group 1 BTC Cup on May 12, 2012, where he will be looking to win his first Group 1 title.
With Black Caviar and Hay List absent from the Brisbane Winter Carnival, Buffering will have his best chance yet to finally break through at the top echelon of racing.
The Mossman gelding came painstakingly close to winning the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap during the autumn, where he was beaten by the smallest of margins by champion sprinter Hay List.
Buffering has now won nine of his 24 race starts and has earned more than $1.3 million in prize money.
