PREMIER trainer Chris Waller was “furious’’ when he discovered a website had been set up in his name — and without his knowledge — by leading syndicator Dean Watt.

The astonishing news emerged yesterday as Watt fronted a stewards inquiry to explain why he had established another website for Triple Crown Syndications, a direct competitor which was also caught by surprise.

Triple Crown’s website carried a link which redirected traffic to Watt’s own company, Dynamic Syndications. The site has since been shut down.

Peter Moody’s preparation takes historic shift

LIFE’S a battle for leading trainer Peter Moody but, in his spare time, he is a student of our nation at war.

Ahead of the traditional VRC St Leger meeting at Flemington, Moody would normally be at Caulfield overseeing track gallops and inspecting horses being prepared to race that afternoon.

Not today. He will join Diggers and the descendants of those that are no longer with us at Melbourne’s Shrine of ­Remembrance.

‘’My daughters have talked me into going to the dawn service,” Moody said. “It’s 100 years in the making, Anzac Day, and is certainly a tradition that our great nation has been built on.”

Vietnam veteran Geoff Grimish will march in the Anzac Day parade on Friday to honour his mates and then hopes Weary can honour one of the Australian army’s most famous figures in the All Aged Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.

Grimish and his wife Mary name their horses with military themes, but rarely have they named one after a person.

Premier Denis Napthine has been unable to shake controversy surrounding his decision to spruik once-disgraced bookmaker Rob Waterhouse, and his involvement in a Liberal Party fund-raiser headlined by Gai Waterhouse at next week’s Warrnambool races. 

The Premier has vehemently denied there is a conflict of interest in him supporting Mr Waterhouse to work in the betting ring – he is allowed to work elsewhere at the event – and the fact Ms Waterhouse is the star attraction along with Dr Napthine at a Liberal Party branch fund-raiser next Wednesday night.

ROBBIE Griffiths will try and claim the elusive Group 1 missing form his CV when grey filly Girl In Flight tackles the $400,000 Schweppes (Australasian) Oaks (2000m) at Morphettville on Saturday.

Griffiths is a regular in the Victorian Trainers’ Premiership Top 10, but a Group 1 victory is the one thing missing from an impressive resume.

And a tricky wide barrier has made pre-race favourite Girl In Flight’s task all the more difficult.
