Promising youngster Seefeld steps out to a trip tomorrow at Eagle Farm that his famous older sibling only attempted at his 15th start in a race.

Seefelt, a son of Sebring, is a half-brother to multiple Group 1 winner and $7million earner Buffering. He debuted with a strong finishing third over 1200m at Eagle Farm last Wednesday and now steps up to 1400m.

“If you nailed me down I would probably say I would prefer 1200m again, but … the way he hit the line suggests the 1400m is not going to be (a problem),” trainer Robert Heathcote said.

“If he’s thrown to Sebring, he will get the 1400m no problem. I had a couple of the other progeny that have got 1600m and further.”

Heathcote outlined how Seefeld is pronounced Zay-felt, named after a ski village in Austria and suggested he could be the last foal of Action Annie, who is rising 22-years-old.

“He’s a favourite in my stable that’s for sure,” Heathcote said.

“I did something unusual, I ran him first up over 1200m at Eagle Farm and he was super. A little unlucky I felt.

“This is a beautiful horse, he has a lovely stride, he was green, he was raw first up. When he got out and saw daylight he really attacked the line and gee I hope he’s got some of Buff’s ability.”

Buffering had the bulk of his successes over 1000m to 1200m. But he did run in the Stradbroke over the Eagle Farm 1400m three times, running fourth as a three-year-old, then second on two occasions as an older horse, both times under 58kg.

Buffering now lives on the property of part-owner Bruce Harry on Brisbane’s south side.

“He’s less than 25 minutes from us at Eagle Farm. We (often) go over there and have a couple of Shirazs and say hi to Buff. He looks great,” Heathcote said.

Seefeld is rated an $8.50 chance with TAB, with last week’s QTIS Jewel placegetter King Gutho the $2.40 favourite.
