Silverball Primed for 2015 Kingston Town Stakes

September 11th, 2015

Silverball has quickly found form through two competitive starts since returning to racing this season, and trainer Chris Waller is very confident the gelding is ready for a return to the winner’s circle in Saturday’s 2015 Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens.

Silverball has been included in nominations for races like the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) in Sydney this time, and began his campaign a credible sixth in the talent-rich Canterbury Hurlstone RSL Handicap (1400m) before progressing to a close second in the Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m) a fortnight ago.

Waller is thrilled to have confirmed Brenton Avdulla to take the ride on Silverball in the 2015 Kingston Town Stakes and is confident the combination will prove a winning one come Race 2 at Rosehill on Saturday.

“Brenton Avdulla won on him last time and what a great win that was,” Waller said.

“This is the same distance and the same track and he is ready to go third-up from a spell.

“From barrier four he should get a lovely run and he will be one of our better bets of the day.”

Posting six wins and a further seven minors through 23 career starts so far, Silverball began her career under the guidance of French trainer Richard Chotard in 2011; passing through two other European stables before arriving in Waller’s care prior this year.

Debuting in Australia for second in the Action’s Calling @ TAB BM90 (1500m) on March 14th, the Kahyasi won his next two starts at Warwick Farm and Flemington respectively; running a luckless fourth in the Peter Armytage Handicap (1700m) before taking out the Listed Lord Mayors Cup (2000m) by close to three lengths on May 9th.
