Always Allison First Juvenile Winner of the Season for Waller

It’s taken Chris Waller some five odd months to score his first juvenile winner of the season but Always Allison delivered his first at Warwick Farm on Wednesday, and not a moment too soon.

The two-year-old filly made her debut in the Tab Rewards Plate (1150m) at Warwick Farm after winning two barrier trials last month. She was due to get her start in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) last Saturday but was scratched from the race after drawing the widest barrier.

There was no risk of that happening again after the filly drew midfield in barrier five in the Tab Rewards Plate with Glyn Schofield to ride. She was also the $1.70 odds-on favourite with online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au.

The filly showed natural speed to settle outside the lead before kicking clear in the straight to easily defeat her eight rivals, finishing two and a half lengths clear of runner-up Badraan with Clash Of Clans a further head away in third.

Interestingly, this was the corresponding meeting that Brazen Beau first won for Waller last year. The three-year-old colt was last seen winning the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) so there’s undoubtedly big plans in the pipeline for Always Allison now.

A potential tilt in the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on March 21 could even be on the cards.

“She will tell us if she is ready, I haven’t got a race yet in mind for her next but if she goes to the Slipper she could have another two runs,” Waller told Sky Racing.

“If not, there are plenty of nice races around, we won’t rush her to get there.”

Even though the summer was winding down and Waller remained without a juvenile winner to his name, the trainer was not overly concerned by the fact.

“We didn’t win a two-year-old Group 1 race last year but still finished with the most Group 1 wins and by the end of the season we had the most two-year-old wins of any stable,” he said.

“This year I thought I might have been a month ahead with my two-year-olds but this shows we are at the same point.”
