Trainer Chris Waller Trainer Chris Waller

Chris Waller is an Australian racing success story but he hasn't forgotten where he came from.

As a young New Zealand trainer with ambitions to train in Sydney, Waller tested the waters in 1998 with Party Belle, a mare he thought might be able to win a provincial race and give him a foothold in Australia.

She lived up to her part of the deal, winning a Wyong maiden and two races at Kembla Grange.

The following year Waller and Party Belle returned and she won three races and gave the trainer his first taste of Sydney stakes racing with her third in the Listed McKell Cup.

On Saturday, the Waller stable saddles up four runners in the Sydney winter staying feature on the same day the trainer strives for his 16th Group One win for the season with Delectation in the Doomben 10,000 in Brisbane.
