Waller’s Winter Stakes 2013 Trio

The season’s most successful Sydney trainer Chris Waller will look to keep the good luck going at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse this Saturday having nominated for three from his stables in the 2013 Winter Stakes.

A total of 17 gallopers were entered for this year’s $100,000 Listed Winter Stakes (1400m) including three Waller-trained stablemates.

The most noteworthy of his contingent is the imported Bayrir who could make their Australian debut in the middle distance sprint.

A four-year-old Medicean stallion, the former French galloper was previously prepared by Melbourne Cup winning trainer Alain de Royer Dupre of Americain fame and only joined Waller’s stables this past summer.

Lightly raced with seven starts to their name so far the Graham and Linda Huddy-owned up and comer has already broken through at elite level winning the Grade 1 Secretariat Stakes (2011m) in the USA last August.

Their most recent appearance was a sixth to 2011 Melbourne Cup runner-up Red Cadeaux in the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m) at Sha Tin in early December where they stayed on steadily to finish two and a half lengths off the winner.

They have had just the one official trial down under when fifth over 1030m at Rosehill on July 9 and are set for their much awaited debut in the Winter Stakes ahead of a spring campaign.

Bayrir’s international achievements, which also include a Group 2 victory in France last July, see them on a 103 handicap rating and slapped with 59kg for Saturday with weights led by last start Civic Stakes winner Mic Mac (60.5kg).

Waller’s two other Winter Stakes hopefuls are then Wazn and Coup Ay Tee who will carry 54.5kg and 54kg respectively.

Another French import Whipper six-year-old Wazn resumes off an injury-enforced spell of over a year, the gelding last seen finishing a respectable sixth to Ginga Dude in last year’s Group 3 Tatt’s Cup (2200m) at Eagle Farm in June.

A known mudlark and stakes winner, Waller expects Wazn to be competitive in their comeback run on the weekend.

“He’s coming back after a year off with a knee injury,” Waller said.

“He has had a barrier trial and has done well since and I’m looking forward to his return.”

He’s also looking forward to seeing where Coup Ay Tee is at after the Danske five-year-old was thrashed in the mud at the start of the month when 10th, beaten 10 lengths, behind Merlin Mustang in the Natski Handicap (1500m) at Rosehill.

“Coup Ay Tee will also run and hopefully can bounce back,” Waller said.
