Opera Buff

Opera Buff

Name: Opera Buff

Age: 9

Owner: Rae Guest

Trainer: Rae Guest

Opera Buff was bought by trainer Rae Guest’s wife specifically for her to ride in the Newmarket Town Plate. She came 4th in the race on him in 2016. His first race was at Salisbury in June 2011 and his last race at Newmarket’s July Course in June 2016. He is a lovely natured horse who ran 45 times under rules but it was felt he would never progress as a racehorse but would make a very nice competition horse. Opera Buff is soon to be sold to his new non-racing home where he will compete in riding club classes.
