“It brings everybody together on the greatest day and everybody has a good time and we’re the lucky ones, with these great horses and yeah, just seeing them come home safe [is great], but at the front of the field safe is pretty special.”

On having a message for jockey James McDonald pre-race:

“He followed his own instructions. I spoke to him this morning. I didn’t want to complicate things,” Waller told Channel 10.

“ [the message was] James, you’re in control. He’s done a great job, each and every time he sits on a horse he takes everything so seriously. I wish he would chill occasionally, but he probably says the same about me.”

Can he compare training Winx to this win?

“Winx took it on a different level altogether. Hard to compare that,” Waller said.

“She probably made me as a person and gave me the confidence, as have some good friends of mine that have been there behind the scenes. What we get out of this sport is very special.

“Week, in week out, people don’t understand what goes into these great races, great horses and this is a very special award.“
