Will Waller break Record at Rosehill on Saturday?

With 155 1/2 metropolitan winners in Sydney over the past 11 months, leading trainer Chris Waller is just one win away from breaking the all-time record for metropolitan wins in the harbour city in a single season.

Legendary trainer Tommy Smith and daughter Gai Waterhouse currently share the record of 156 wins and the time between the feat being achieved is a testament to both trainers as well as Waller.

Smith set the mark in the 1975-76 season before being equalled by Waterhouse in 2002-03.

With four weekends still remaining in the current racing season, it appears inevitable that Waller will surpass the achievement.

But will it be this Saturday at Rosehill?

On face value, most likely. The Rosehill-based trainer has runners in all but the first of eight races on the program and will send out 11 horses in total.

Among them are several key chances – including many favourites.
