Chris Waller Acquires Group 1 Placegetter Silk Pins

Top Sydney trainer Chris Waller has acquired a Group 1 placegetter from New Zealand with successful three-year-old Silk Pins set to join his Rosehill stables.

The Pins filly departed New Zealand last Monday with former trainer Brendon Hawtin revealing to The Informant that it was always the plan.

“She deserves to be there. It’s all about money and if she can get some black type in Sydney that will obviously boost her value as a broodmare later on,” Hawtin said.

“We caught up with the owner Max Whitby at the Ready to Run Sale and said it was in the best interests of the filly to go.”

Yet to race as a three-year-old, Silk Pins was one of the most impressive juveniles in New Zealand last season.

After winning on debut last October, she opened 2012 in excellent fashion when second in the Listed Karaka Million (1200m) before running third in the Group 2 Matamata Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) and third again in the Group 1 Hanui Farm Diamond Stakes (1200m).

An incident in the paddock, which resulted in surgery on a fetlock, meant the promising youngster played no part in the spring but has since recovered well and come through two recent trials unscathed.

“She had a trial at Auckland and we weren’t there to break any records and then she went to the Te Aroha trials and beat a couple of handy open class horses, so she’s coming up really well,” Hawtin said.

Former New Zealand trainer Waller has experienced great success since moving to Sydney, winning the past two metropolitan training premierships.
