Waller Has 3 In 10 Chance Of Winning Own Race
Record-breaking Sydney trainer Chris Waller has three runners engaged at Canterbury Park today in a race that carries his own name, the eponymous 'Congratulations Chris Waller Handicap' (1900m). The race acknowledges the outstanding achievement of Waller in establishing a new Sydney training benchmark for most metropolitan wins in a season at Rosehill last Saturday. Waller trained 4 winners on the 8-race card to set a new (interim) mark of 159.5 wins, eclipsing the 156.5 record set by Tommy Smith & Gai Waterhouse. Ten horses will line up in the Benchmark 73 event, with Waller represented by Trick Shot (Al Maher), Urban Rocker (Fastnet Rock) & Seuss (One Cool Cat).
