Waller Racing New Stable For Eastender
Exciting Tasmanian stayer Eastender (Tickets-Cougar Alley, by Mossman) is being moved to trainer Chris Waller after South Australian stewards hand his former trainer Barry Campbell a three year disqualification. It’s a logical move. Winner of three Tasmanian Cups races in a row, the Devonport Cup, Gr3 Hobart Cup and Gr3 Launceston Cup, Eastender is raced by Denise Martin’s Star Thoroughbreds which already has a very successful association with the Waller Stable. The winner of over $500,000 was a shock scratching on the morning of the Adelaide Cup, and has since won again and also placed in the Listed Andrew Ramsden Stakes at Flemington behind virtual dead-heaters Steel Prince and Surprise Baby. Eastender was a $22,000 purchase at the 2015 Magic Millions Tasmanian Sale.
