Waller Enjoying QLD Move

Wednesday, 18th October 2017

Champion trainer Chris Waller believes his new Gold Coast stable will provide the perfect platform from which to launch an assault on future Queensland carnivals, reports Racing Queensland Webnews. Waller currently has 18 horses under the care of Paul Shailer at the Gold Coast and has produced five metropolitan winners since the start of the new season. "It's going fantastically well. We are not here to tread on any toes. We are here to complement our business in Sydney and try to help our owners find an extra win, or two," Waller explained. "The stable will be important to help us be strong during the winter carnival, which is a big part of the Australian calendar." Waller says he approves of the new-look Summer Carnival, which this year will feature more than $14 million in prize money and $1.6 million in Summer Crown bonuses. "I can see Queensland is pushing hard to boost its Summer Carnival and we see it getting better every year, and we see that it's a big part of an owner's portfolio of getting some extra prize money" Waller said. "I think prize money will go from strength to strength and Queensland can follow in the footsteps of New South Wales."
