Buffering Scratched from BTC Cup 2012 – Doomben Race Scratchings

BTC Cup 2012 favourite Buffering has been scratched from today’s Group 1 feature sprint after failing a vet inspection this morning following a stone bruise that became apparent after routine trackwork at Eagle Farm yesterday.


Buffering has been scratched from the BTC Cup

The injury is minor and the Queensland star will still take part in the Brisbane Winter Carnival but it serves as a further blow to the opening day of the Brisbane action after New Zealand star Malandrino was scratched from the Rough Habit Plate yesterday following a Hong Kong sales deal.

Apart from the two high profile scratchings, some excellent weather in Brisbane has seen the track rated as dead (4) so we should be in for an exciting card of racing in the Queensland capital with limited scratchings throughout the day.
