Dr Tim Roberts (Stable Veterinarian)
A Sydney University graduate in 1975, Dr Tim Roberts has been involved with Chris Waller Racing ever since Chris made the move to Sydney.
Well versed in all aspects of horseflesh, Tim worked in racing stables in South Africa for many years and is now based at the Moore Park Equestrian Centre in Sydney where he oversees around 250 horses.
“Tim knows his racing and is very good with people and also an extremely talented veterinarian and surgeon,” said Chris.
“Since I have come to Australia Tim has been somewhat like a father figure to me. His experience saves us a lot of time and money when it comes to buying and treating horses.
“He is an astute selector of yearlings for our stable and he has been pivotal in our buying a number of UK horses which have had great success for us.”
Over the year’s Tim has been involved in the veterinary care of a number of champion horses, most notably the 1997 Caulfield and Melbourne Cup winner and 1998 Cox Plate winner Might And Power which was raced by Nick Moraitis.
