VERRY ELLEEGANT COULD BE ON FAREWELL TOUR

Melbourne Cup winner Verry Elleegant could be heading to new pastures in 2022 after it was revealed by the Chris Waller stable that the coming Autumn campaign could be her last in Australia with international targets in mind

Verry Elleegant set for farewell Autumn Campaign

The Waller team are likely to make the Queen Elizabeth Stakes Verry Elleegants final start in Australia.

The Melbourne Cup Champion returned from the paddock this week and heads straight into pre-training before a return to the more familiar surroundings of Wallers Rosehill training base before the Xmas period.

“I said to Chris she almost looks out of proportion,” Waller’s assistant Charlie Duckworth said.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen her carry so much weight.

“She’s still maturing which is a great thing that its happening, but you wouldn’t have expected it.

“Generally, our better horses do slightly less in pre-training because Chris likes them in the stables prior to doing three-quarter pace work.

“She will only have a couple of weeks in pre-training and will be back in the stables before Christmas.”

Waller confirmed in a recent interview that Verry Elleegant was likely to follow a similar path to previous years with Duckworth confirming there was no need to change routine in the coming year. 

“Expect her autumn campaign to be similar to what it’s been the past couple of years,” Duckworth said.

“The Queen Elizabeth will be her Aussie grand final and this year it could well be her last start in Australia.

“The only big change to what’s ahead for her is the dream to try to get her to the Arc (Prix de l‘Arc de Triomphe) in October.”

Verry Elleegant currently sits third on the line of betting ($11) for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes behind long term rival Zaaki who sits as favourite at $8.
