March QTIS Sale graduate, Buffering sent his earnings soaring past $3 million with a breakthrough Group One win in Friday night’s $1 million Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.
After a string of excellent placings in Group One events around the country, the two time Queensland Horse of the Year was able to notch his career best win in front of jubilant connections.
Trainer Robert Heathcote was the proudest man on course as his stable star held on to beat international raider Lucky Nine by a short half head.
Buffering was purchased for connections by New Zealand based bloodstock agent Paul Willetts for $22,000 at the 2009 March QTIS Yearling Sale.
Willetts and Heathcote took a shine to the son of Mossman, offered at the auction by Kevin Dixon’s Racetree nursery in Queensland.
GLENLOGAN PARK’S Champion Stallion, Show A Heart, added another Group One winner to his impressive stud record on Sunday night when the Michael Freedman trained Super Ninetyseven (pictured) produced a whirlwind finish to take out the second leg of the Singapore Triple Crown Series, the $500,000 Raffles Cup.
In a huge coup for the farm, Glenlogan Park stallions have now supplied both of the winners in the first two legs of this Group One series after the Bradbury’s Luck gelding, Cash Luck, was victorious in the Kranji Mile earlier in the month.
However it was Show A Heart’s Super Ninetyseven that reigned supreme on Sunday and it was a victory that was very well-deserved.
The $85,000 QTIS 2yo Fillies Hcp was highly anticipated, with all expect Wicked Temptation first starters.
Setfire to Therain by Eliza Park sire, Monashee Mountain, will be one to watch for after proving too strong for her opposition in the 1000m dash to the line.
4yo mare La Tikka Rosa, by Freeze, notched up her fourth win from twelve starts in the 1200m Iveco Hcp and was the first of a winning double for trainer Matt Dunn on the day.
Glenlogan Park’s stallion Jet Spur added yet another city winning double to his resume yesterday when Qfighter and Flying Jet (pictured, Trackside Photography) both unleashed terrific finishing bursts to salute impressively.
And rounding out the program for the Queenslanders was the ever consistent Lyndhurst Stud sire, Hidden Dragon.
His promising gelding, Friendly Dragon, easily accounted for his opposition in the 3yo QTIS Hcp (1400m) and collected an impressive $56,500 in the process thanks to the $24,500 QTIS bonus.
 There was an incredible $202,000 in bonus prizemoney on offer for QTIS eligible horses in fourteen races across Queensland this week, proving just how rewarding it is for owners to purchase from the March QTIS Sale.
Both feature events, the $85,000 2yo Fillies Handicap and the $85,000 3yo Handicap went off, with Set Fire to Therain (picutred, Dan Costello Racing) impressing in the two year old event and Friendly Dragon taking out the three year olds.
Both horses collected $56,500, as opposed to $32,000, thanks to the QTIS bonus while the second placegetters won $17,000 ($7,000 QTIS) and Queen of the Lochs ran away with $8,500, the prizemoney almost doubled thanks to QTIS.
Helorocity took out Rockhampton’s feature event, the $32,000 QTIS 2yo Maiden Plate.
And QTIS horses raced away with $30,000 in the QTIS 2yo Plate at Cairns, won by Element of Chance, while the Gold Coast was offering $25,000 in their QTIS 2yo Maiden Plate.
Prizemoney was also doubled at the Sunshine Coast, Townsville and Gatton, with $22,000 up for grabs in the QTIS races at those venues and prizemoney was boasted to $11,000 on the country circuit at Isisford, Gympie, Gladstone and Clifton – all thanks to QTIS.
