Waller Chases Four Straight Breeders

By Brad Gray

Chris Waller chases his fourth straight Breeders Classic and this year saddles up the dual-pronged attack of French Emotion and Tsaritsa.

Amicus took out the race last year while Catkins went back-to-back the two years prior. Waller could be shooting for five straight if Red Tracer had managed to reel in Steps In Time, finishing a narrow second in 2013.

“Tsaritsa was a Group Two winner in the winter and then was a little bit disappointing in the spring so we backed off her. She wasn’t quite herself, she was panicking in her races we thought,” Waller said.

“We’ve just gone back to the basics with her teaching her to settle, teaching her to relax. We’ll ride her quiet, get her to conserve some energy and hopefully get herself back on track.

“She’ll head towards the Coolmore as her third-up run with the Guy Walter after Saturday.

“French Emotion was second in the Myer in the spring and looks to be in for a good preparation.

“She’s come back a little bit stronger. It’s probably a little bit short but she’s a class horse.”

Waller also weighed in with his thoughts on The Everest concept, the new $10 million race to be held in October at Randwick.

“Racing NSW needs to be congratulated,” said Waller.

“Not only in New South Wales do you get to race for The Championships, The Everest but also $100,000 in prize money every Saturday of the year.

“Not just that, it also flows through to the country where they are running for $20,000. Nowhere else in the world can you do that.

“(Racing NSW) never get to a certain level and say that’s enough they always look for a new way to improve things.”
