Well firstly we are excited with the win at $21.90. Winx won’t be anything like that but with Waller having six of the 8 runners in the Star Apollo he is obliged under the rules of racing to instruct his riders to do everything they can to beat her. In fact the other two trainers will have been planning for this race with that very aim while acknowledging that is not a very likely scenario, admitting that they are racing for second prizemoney. If we are fair dinkum we know some of Wallers runners have no chance of even running a place in the 8 horse field but that’s not the issue. After what alledgedly went on in the Weir stable we expect that Stewards should be more vigilant than ever and maybe someone, Racing NSW for example, should come up with a solution to the issue by possibly restricting how much of a field can be under the guidance of a single trainer? It’s essential for the integrity and image of Racing to avoid issues , not to make them.
We take no issue with Chris Waller whatsoever, in fact we have a horse trained by him. Heres the video https://youtu.be/cGv-StyeR6Y
