“She’s going good and had a freshen up before her recent Mackay win,” Walsh said.
“She’s come on really well since her last win and her work has been tremendous.
“It’s a drop back in distance to 1000 metres but I don’t think that will bother her and she doesn’t have to lead.
“I think she’s better when ridden just off the speed.”
Princess Rules is part-owned by Rockhampton grazier Gavin Milner, who bred her before buying her back for $39,000 at the Capricorn Yearling sales.
“Gavin normally has about seven horses with me at any one time and he breeds a lot of his horses as well,” Walsh said.
Walsh has only been training for about two years but is making his mark among the Central Queensland training ranks.
He combines training with a full-time job as a salesman for Greensteel - a steel distribution company in Rockhampton.
Walsh’s day starts around 2.30am working at the stables before heading off to work at 8am and returns home around 7pm each night after completing stable chores of an afternoon.
