Chris Waller’s team has had an early 2021 win after it was announced that former Godolphin runner Aramayo would be returning to Australia for horse racing action in the New Year.

Former Australian distance runner Aramayo will be heading back down under in 2021 after it was announced that he would be trained by Chris Waller in the coming year. 


Aramayo, formerly part of the Godolphin team trained by James Cummings left for Singapore part way through 2019 with his final run finishing 11th in the Australian Derby at Randwick.

Australia up to that point had been impressive placing in several Group races and winning the Group 3 Spring Stakes at Newcastle. He had also tackled several Group 1s along the way however failed to win each time.

Since arriving in Singapore however under the training of Shane Baertschiger, Aramayo has really kicked on taking out two Group 1s including the Kranji Mile over 1600m and the Raffles Cup in an exciting finish also over 1600m

The move for Aramayo signifies a shift in Singaporian racing with many top trainers and owners looking at options for premium racing elsewhere due to the changes.

Earlier this month 5 time Melbourne Cup winning trainer Lee Freedman announced he would be returning to Australia with plans to relocate and train on the Gold Coast.

Waller will be keen to see Aramayo on Australian shores and sees the talent the 5 year old gelding possess:

“He is obviously a talented horse and we are looking forward to having him in the stable,” Waller said.

“We won’t give him unrealistic expectations, we will try and place him well and whether it is a good mile here in Sydney or up in Queensland, we will wait and see.”

Waller had success on Saturday with three metropolitan winners (one Randwick, two Eagle Farm) and leads Sydney’s metropolitan premiership again.
