A hit-and-run raid on Sydney from his former home of Foxton in New Zealand in 1998 proved the forerunner to Kiwi horseman Chris Waller making a full-time move to Australia. Chris began his career with horses back in Foxton with trainer Paddy Busuttin. He was travelling Foreman for Busuttin and had an association with stable veteran Castletown which ran third in the 1992 Melbourne Cup behind Subzero. Chris took over Busuttin’s Foxton stables when the trainer took up a Singapore training contract.

He brought one horse to Sydney for his first attack – Party Belle – and they went home a winner. Following that Chris made more frequent trips to Sydney where he stayed at Rosehill before eventually making the move permanent. Having started with a small team of four horses when granted stables at Rosehill, Chris now has 120 thoroughbreds in full work with the team constantly looking to life the calibre of horse in the stable. In the autumn of 2008 Waller prepared his first Group One winner when Triple Honour rocketed to victory in the Doncaster Handicap. That breakthrough win followed a nose second to star galloper Weekend Hussler in the Randwick Guineas.

Since then Chris has experienced many big race wins plus he's taken out the past three Sydney Metro Trainers' Premierships and been crowned Champion Australian Trainer for conditioning the most Group One winners last season.

Now firmly entrenched at the top of the Sydney Trainers’ premiership, Chris is grateful for the support of loyal stable clients that he has trained for since his arrival at Rosehill and is a regular at the major carnivals and yearling sales around Australia as well as venturing to the UK to purchase tried horses.
