A Narrabri-owned race horse is making her mark on the NSW racing scene under the close eye of champion trainer Chris Waller.
That is four-year-old mare Welsh Legend, which has a strong Narrabri connection.
Welsh Legend was bred by former Narrabri man Bob Haire, brother of Narrabri Lions president Vince Haire.
Bob, his wife Judy and daughter Rhonda, Vince’s wife Kerrie and Vince and Bob’s brother Bill’s wife Penny are all part owners of the in-form mare.
Welsh Legend debuted in Port Macquarie in April 2018 and since then has raced 20 times for two wins, six second-placed finishes and a trio of third-placed finishes.
She has earned an incredible $230,650 in prizemoney/bonuses in her short career.
In her past five starts Welsh Legend has won once and placed second three times. In all five of those she was ridden by Group One-winning jockey Brenton Advulla.
The win was at Rosehill Gardens which was her first at that prestigious venue. It was a narrow one as she edged out the David Pfieffer-trained, James McDonald-ridden Laure Me In in a what was a nail-biting photo finish.
Her only race since then saw her place second at Royal Randwick Racecorse on Saturday, May 9, and following that race she has been spelled to return in the spring.
Welsh Legend is currently in great hands as a member of the Chris Waller Racing stable.
Waller was the trainer of the horse of a generation Winx, as well as The Everest-winning Yes Yes Yes and Golden Eagle winner Kolding. He has trained more than 2600 winners in his career.To order photos from this page click here
