Nominations have been announced for the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes, which will run at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday November 23, 2013.
Amongst the 47 nominations for the $500,000 race is Buffering,who has just ended his spring racing carnival on a high.
The six-year-old is coming off the back of two impressive Group 1 wins in the $1 million Manikato Stakes and VRC Sprint Classic.
Buffering was well-known for his inability to win a Group 1 race, despite placing at the highest level of Australian racing on numerous occasions.
However, that has all changed thanks to his previous two winning runs and he will be out to continue his form when he runs in the 2013 Winterbottom Stakes.
Buffering has won 14 of his 37 race starts and has earned more than $3.6 million in prize money during his horse racing career.
He is trained at Eagle Farm in Brisbane by Rob Heathcote and will likely be ridden by regular jockey Damien Browne when he runs in the 2013 Winterbottom Stakes.
Also included in the 2013 Winterbottom Stakes nominations is Spirit Of Boom.
Spirit Of Boom has won seven of his 44 race starts and has earned more than $676,000 in prize money during his career.
The six-year-old won the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint two starts back before placing second in the Group 2 Yellowglen Stakes last run.
Spirit Of Boom is trained by Tony Gollan at Eagle Farm and has had four race starts this preparation so far.
The Sequalo entire will be looking for his first Group 1 title to cement his career as a stallion in the very near future.
