The life size bronze statue commemorates the deeds of Queensland racehorse Buffering. 

Seven-time Group 1 winner Buffering has been immortalised with a statue standing in his honour at Eagle Farm. Trainer Rob Heathcote and jockey Damian Browne were on hand to see the masterpiece honouring the super brave on-pacer unveiled.

The pride of Queensland racing, Buffering went on to have 35 starts at Group 1 level - and travelled to Dubai and won the Al Quoz Sprint as an eight-year-old.

Buffering tallied 20 wins from 55 starts in his heralded career, bringing in more than $7.3 million in stakes.

The statue was unveiled on Manikato Stakes eve - Buffering took 18 starts at the top level to break through, but the 2013 Manikato was the night in which he did, and the 2016 Manikato was his racetrack finale.
