Wheeler in the dogs is Australia's biggest breeder and gives them out around Australia to many trainers.

He has a clause, I get 50% of the stake money, EVEN IF MY DOGS IS SWABBED AND FOUND POSITIVE AND LOSES THE RACE.


You still have to pay me, I wonder if Chris Waller will give the connections their $460k???


I had a big day on writing songs and wrote 8 rock classics....that is 26 now in 3 weeks...wahoo.

Chris Waller's full statement re: positive swab


Chris Waller has vowed to beef-up stable security Chris Waller has vowed to beef-up stable security

Chris Waller has this evening released the below statement with regard to Junoob's positive swab and disqualification from the Group One Metropolitan Handicap, and

the trainer's subsequent $30,000 fine. 

"Today has been difficult, however I will never lose respect for Racing NSW or the high level of integrity it upholds.

The findings from today support the fact that it was an innocent mistake that occurred, but one with significant repercussions that I as the trainer must accept.

To further safeguard from the slightest possibility of it happening again, we have extended CTV footage within our stable from 28 days to 36+ days to ensure possible intruders are monitored, staff procedures are adhered to and the horses are continually kept safe. A lot of this comes at a cost, however a small cost in the whole scheme of things. We will ensure witnesses accompany any treatments prescribed by veterinarian or senior staff members and implement the use of electronic microchip scanners

As the trainer of 1544 runners last season, over 50% of our runners were subject to pre and post-race testing and we adhere to significantly higher scrutiny levels from a sampling perspective. I am not the first leading trainer to have been in this position, but those that have been before me would understand that it is a frustrating time.

I accept the decision handed down by Racing NSW stewards today and I now look forward to putting this behind me and striving for further success.

Kind Regards

Chris Waller

Following the disqualification of Junoob, the Waller-trained Opinion has been declared the official Metropoliatan winner, with Araldo and Kingdoms filling the revised placings.

Went punting late last night and got winners in South Africa and Uk and now in California...its easy as long as

they show me the horses to rate in fitness.

Lord of the Sky, posted before Saturdays race.


"You can rate this horses blood count on Saturday with our documentaries.

Millions were lost by punters in his last two starts because the trainer missed his 19-20 blood count,

now he burns up on the track prior to the race, again not good training programs, good luck Jim"


So once again 28.8 is right on the button, horse runs 4th because he left his speed on the training track.

How dumb is that?


He had two starts where punters lost millions odds om, because he had no blood count, now he has a 19 blood, burns up his winning chances

on the training track and punters loose another million.




I am sick of dumb trainers who blame other factors, when in fact they a just plain stupid!

This is a nice horse and got on him when he struck a good patch, but a note of warning here, this horse has to have 19/20 blood counts to perform at his best.

Can Weir jump on the wagon quick enough for that, I am not so sure as he builds his horses up with lower blood counts till peak fitness and that may lead to a "over the hill" atmosphere around the stable.

He has to have 19/20 blood to put his best foot forward so a real challenge for the trainer.

My opinion:     At 8 years old and  the trainer does not know how this horse he won't make it.


Cheers Jim




Darren Weir to train Dandino

By Adrian Dunn TVN Friday, December 5, 2014 - 3:08 PM

FORMER UK-based stayer Dandino will be aimed at next year’s Caulfield Cup.

Darren Dance, whose Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock race the 2013 Caulfield Cup runner-up, said the eight-year-old has just been sent to Darren Weir’s stables in Ballarat.

Dance said there is no intention to push Dandino, which suffered an injury to his off foreleg, which brought a premature end to his Cups assault this year, to be ready for the Sydney autumn carnival.

Dandino was withdrawn from the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups and spent the best part of a month at Dance’s property.

“We are just going to take our time with him,” Dance said.

“It is probably the first time that he’s had a decent spell in five years. We’re just going to set him for the Caulfield Cup and take our time getting there.

“The leg has been scanned a few times, it looks good. We’ll just put him on the treadmill at Darren’s for a couple of months then he will go down to the beach at Warrnambool for a couple of months.

“And, then we will slowly build him up.”

Two horses return positive swabs to cobalt

RACING Victoria have opened an inquiry into excessive cobalt levels in two horses trained by Lee and Shannon Hope.


RV chairman of stewards Terry Bailey said stewards had received a report from the Racing Analytical Services Laboratory confirming positive swabs returned by Windy Citi Bear and Best Suggestion.


RASL reported that the pre-race urine samples taken from both horses contained cobalt at a concentration in excess of 200 micrograms per litre in urine, which is a prohibited substance in accordance with the Victorian Local Rules of Racing.


Earlier this year RV stewards set a cobalt threshold level of 200 micrograms per litre in urine.


The sample was taken from Windy Citi Bear when the gelding ran fifth in the Charles Rose Jewellers 3YO BM78 Handicap at Geelong on June 25.


Best Suggestion returned a positive when the gelding ran eighth in the Handicap at Caulfield on July 5. 


Bailey said stewards are continuing with its investigation.

How big is Allan Clark smiling?


Trainer Allan Clark has today been fined $1,500 on a positive swab charge.

At a hearing before the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) Board, Clarke pleaded guilty to a charge under AR 178, dealing with bringing a horse to the races with a prohibited substance in its system.

The specifics of the charge relate to the horse Publisher after it ran in and won a Maiden Plate at Coleraine on Sunday, September 28, 2014.

A urine sample taken from the horse returned a positive swab to phenylbutazone and oxyphenbutazone.

Clark was convicted and fined $1,500, payable by December 31.

Publisher was subsequently disqualified from the race in question
