Waller Will Prepare Adelaide for 2015 Queen Elizabeth Stakes

It was announced in November that Irish globetrotter Adelaide would remain in Australia for the autumn in the care of top Sydney trainer Chris Waller after winning the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) in the spring.

The superstar import will be in Waller’s stables in the upcoming two weeks before being prepared for the $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick Racecourse on April 11.

Adelaide is currently doing dressage work to prepare him for the autumn, where he will run a maximum of two starts (most likely in Sydney) with Waller before returning to the care of Aidan O’Brien in Britain.

“He’s doing a bit of dressage work and we’re just working on building up in the right places so we’ve got a good foundation to work with,” Waller told RSN’s Racing Ahead.

“In probably a week to 10 days he’ll be back in the stable at Rosehill.”

Three-year-old Adelaide had finished in the first three in all seven of his career starts throughout Europe and America before travelling to Australia in the spring for the 2014 Cox Plate on October 25. After a wide start from barrier 13 (of 14), Adelaide eased over heels to be last out of the straight. He took off at the 1000m to improve and gradually worked around the field. He got up with the leaders at the turn and outstayed his rivals to win a neck away from Fawkner and Silent Achiever.

The entire’s connections decided to keep Adelaide in Australia for the autumn in a hope to improve him ahead of the Royal Ascot meeting back in England during June.

“He doesn’t need to do much more in Australia and we’re fortunate to have him here I guess,” Waller said.

“The plan is the Queen Elizabeth and then send him back to Aidan O’Brien with some petrol in the tank.”

Chris Waller will undoubtedly be the trainer to watch this upcoming season after a cracking 2014. Open your online betting account at Ladbrokes.com.au to follow his every move and you’ll receive a $250 bonus match when you make your first bet. Just quote code: BETBONUS.
