Waller pre­pared to smash through 200 wins

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT - Ray Thomas

CHRIS Waller, Syd­ney’s all­con­quer­ing trainer, could do the un­think­able and smash the 200-win bar­rier this sea­son.

With the 2015-16 sea­son only three months old, Waller has al­ready pre­pared more than 50 Syd­ney win­ners. Waller, who is al­ready cer­tain to claim his sixth con­sec­u­tive premier­ship at sea­son’s end in July, is well ahead of record pace as he chases down the all-time record of 167.5 Syd­ney wins he pre­pared in the 2012-13 sea­son.

DERBY DAY

SYD­NEY Satur­day rac­ing re­turns to Rose­hill Gar­dens for the first time in a month this week­end, co­in­cid­ing with the pres­ti­gious Derby Day meet­ing at Flem­ing­ton.

The big­gest Syd­ney at­ten­dance so far this sea­son of just over 20,000 at­tended the Ep­som Day meet­ing on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 3 but this fig­ure should be eclipsed when Rand­wick races on Mel­bourne Cup Day - Novem­ber 3.

THIS WEEK’S TIP

MY tip for this week­end is to fol­low in-form jockey Tim Clark, who is at­tract­ing rides from all the ma­jor sta­bles.
