Straight Arron Wins G3 Carbine Club- Half-Sister Selling Tuesday

Saturday April 2nd 2022

Two of the stable stars for champion trainer Chris Waller are Torryburn Stud bred and sold 3YO’s Home Affairs and Espiona and he now has a third Torryburn graduate star 3YO on the rise in Straight Arron, who charged to victory in the Group III ATC Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.

Fastnet Rock gelding Straight Arron has been given plenty of time to mature winning his debut at Sandown on January 5, before returning to Sydney to finish second at Warwick Farm on March 23.

He hit the line hard on that occasion in a strong race and was sent out favourite for the Carbine Club despite the step up in distance and very heavy conditions.

Ridden quietly by James McDonald, Straight Arron unwound a big finish in the straight, zooming past his rivals to win running away by nearly three lengths in a most dominant display.

“He showed good acceleration and made it look easy. The owners have been happy for me to take my time with him and have been very patient,” said Chris Waller, who has not planned beyond today for Straight Arron.

“With horses like that we can keep raising the bar, so he has a really bright future and his pedigree would suggest he will get 2000m and further.”
