Traditionally, Waller has relied on Brisbane trainers making room in their stables to have a tilt at the Summer and Winter carnivals.
“The (Queensland) trainers have been very helpful but if you’re looking to bring 10 horses to Queensland you can’t expect a trainer at the Gold Coast or Eagle Farm to make way for you,” he said.
“It’s going fantastically well. We are not here to tread on any toes. We are here to complement our business in Sydney and try to help our owners find an extra win, or two.
“The stable will be important to help us be strong during the (Winter) Carnival, which is a big part of the Australian calendar.”
Waller gave the new-look Summer Carnival - which will this year feature more than $14 million in prize money, and $1.6 million in Summer Crown bonuses - the thumbs-up.
“I can see Queensland is pushing hard to boost its Summer Carnival and we see it getting better every year, and we see that it’s a big part of an owner’s portfolio of getting some extra prize money” Waller said.
“I think prize money will go from strength to strength and Queensland can follow in the footsteps of New South Wales.”
