Rawiller Rides Three, Waller One Away From Premiership Record

Nash Rawiller has gained some precious ground in the Sydney metropolitan jockey premiership while series leader Hugh Bowman has been on leave.

Rawiller, currently on 58 wins, sits 11 wins away from premiership leader Bowman after scoring three wins on Wednesday at Warwick Farm.

The dual premiership (2009/10 and 2010/11) winner posted his first win by a nose when riding Clever Boy, helping leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller edge one win close to the Sydney metropolitan training record.

His next win came aboard The Great Snowman for Gai Waterhouse which propelled Rawiller past second placed jockey Glyn Schofield.

His final win came again for Waller, this time aboard Another Lovechild in the final event of the day, coasting down the centre of the track for a comfortable 2-1/4 length victory.

An excellent book of rides on Saturday’s Rosehill Gardens meeting could mean that he edges even closer to Bowman, who is due to return to riding next week.

Chris Waller is now just one win away from creating Sydney premiership history after training two winners at Warwick Farm yesterday.

Waller has 11 horses engaged at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday with three in the feature event Listed Civic Stakes and looks certain to finally break the elusive barrier.
