Meet Dynamic Trainer - Chris Waller
In April 2000, Chris Waller moved from NZ to Rosehill with 4 horses. Since that time which is just a tick over 10 years Chris Waller has won over 465 races in Australia including 325 Metropolitan races.
He finished runner up by just 4 wins in the 2009/10 Sydney Premiership.
Chris now has 100 horses in work at Rosehill.
Amongst these victories are more than 40 Stakes Wins including:
- 7 Group 1 wins
- 11 Group 2 wins
- 9 Group 3 wins
- 13 Listed wins
At 35 he has spent his life developing his skills as one of Sydney’s most talented young horseman.
Chris’ background in racing is sound. He worked for 7 years as foreman and then later as assistant trainer to legendary Kiwi trainer Paddy Busuttin. He worked and travelled with Group 1 winners like Castletown, Plume, Red Chiffon, Mrs Selleck and Coconut Ice.
Chris started training in 1997 and met with instant success.
Before coming to Australia with his team of just 4 horses Chris had already trained over 100 winners in his own right in New Zealand many at Black type Level.
His method of training is apparent in his words: “ I believe every horse has individual needs which a trainer can only understand if he takes a hands on approach. Horses in my stable have a programme and work schedule that is designed for them alone and prepared by myself.”
The industry has taken notice of Chris Waller over the past few seasons and Dynamic Syndications believes Chris is one of the few rising stars in the Sydney training ranks.
