A couple of decades ago, few of us knew who Chris Waller was. In 1998, the young Kiwi lad from Foxton took a mare to the best venue in the country, Wyong; the rest, as they say, is history. At the moment, Chris Waller is best known for the work he’s done with Winx, a mare whose career he has handled admirably.

He was the assistant trainer at the Foxton-based horse trainer, Patrick (“Paddy”) Busuttin, well known for his top stayer, Castletown. Eventually, Waller became a stable foreman and, when Busuttin moved to Singapore, he started training on his own. 

Waller’s first winner came in 1997 at Trentham Racecourse when he guided Go Morgan to victory. For the Dawn Fox syndicate, he won the Group 3 Dunedin Gold Cup (2400m) at Wingatui on 12 February 2000 with Ripon Bay.
