Rain Interrupts Campaign For Heathcote’s Stable Stars

Buffering is facing a disrupted campaign after heavy rain continued to fall across Brisbane today.

The four-year-old gelding is supposed to be partaking in an exhibition gallop alongside stablemate Woorimbetween races at the Australia Day meeting this Thursday in Brisbane.


Buffering will miss a planned exhibition gallop at Doomben this Thursday if the rain in Brisbane continues.

Doomben Racecourse is currently rated as a Heavy 8, and with weather not expected to let up over the next few days, the track may not be suitable for the pair.

Trainer Robert Heathcote may aim to run both Woorim and Buffering at Eagle Farm on Saturday instead if the weather improves.

“It looks like it’s going to be pretty wet following all the rain we’ve had and I may have to reassess things on the day,” Heathcote said.

“If I don’t gallop them on Thursday I may be able to work them on Saturday between races.”

The exhibition gallop is due to the give both Buffering and Woorim the opportunity to have a hit up in preparation for their autumn racing carnival debuts in Melbourne.

Buffering is due to resume in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes at Flemington on February 18, while Woorim will debut in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield on February 25.

The pair will both then run in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap before Woorim heads to Sydney for the remainder of the autumn racing season.

Heathcote will be looking to win the first group 1 race of his career this autumn after Buffering could not finish better than second to Black Caviar in the Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic.

“It’s unfortunate that I’ve run into a once-in-a-generation horse like Black Caviar,” Heathcote said.

“Buffering ran third to Black Caviar and Hay List in last year’s BTC Cup at Doomben and ran second to her in the Patinack Farm Classic.

“Woorim has been desperately unlucky in three Group Ones in the Sir Rupert Clarke in 2010 and last year in the Patinack Farm Classic and Stradbroke.

“That’s five Group Ones I’ve missed with them but I’m not too concerned.

“It’ll happen one day as I’ve got a good stable coming through.”
