Chris Waller celebrated his 37th birthday in style when his warhorse Danleigh captured his fourth Group One win in the Chipping Norton Stakes at Warwick Farm on Saturday.
Perfectly ridden by Hugh Bowman, the seven-year-old came with a perfectly-timed run in the straight to overhaul runner-up Centennial Park who was being hailed as the winner inside the final 200 metres of the 1,600m feature.
Sacred Choice was third and Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday an eye-catching fourth.
Danleigh had previously scored at the elite level in the 2009 All-Aged Stakes and Manikato Stakes and last year's George Ryder Stakes, a race firmly on his agenda again.
"Everything's gone well with this horse this preparation," Waller said.
"Once you get these old boys fired up they know what to do.
"It was perfect ride from Hugh Bowman.
"A good birthday."
Bowman was rapt in Danleigh's win which was his ninth in 41 starts and took his prize money past $2 million.
"He's been a good horse to me and to Chris too," he said.
"He's been a wonderful horse.
"Everything fell into place today and I was confident a long way out."Top Stories

Premier trainer Chris Waller can't recall having eight runners in one race before, let alone a group 1. However he still thinks Saturday's Chipping Norton Stakes is Contributer's to lose despite his record team.
"Eight is a lot to have in one race, I don't think I have had that many in a race before, but you only need one. The way I look at the race is that Contributer would have to come back a fair bit for us to beat him," Waller said.
Punters agreed as Godolphin's import Contributer was backed from $3 into $2.80 at Ladbrokes for Sydney's first group 1 of 2015 when betting opened on Wednesday. Waller admitted to being impressed by the way Contributer toyed with a similar field in the Apollo Stakes a fortnight ago.
However he has more than half the field of 15 and if they all start it will break the record for the most runners in a group 1 in Australia, held jointly by Gai Waterhouse and John Hawkes.
Waterhouse had seven runners in the Metropolitan in 1995 and 1996, when she won it with Electronic and Hula Flight, while Hawkes in the halcyon days of Crown Lodge had seven in the 2003 Golden Slipper with Legally Bay the first of the team home when fifth behind Polar Success.
The staggering eight runners for Waller is testament to his training philosophy. He keeps horses coming back year after year. The group have won 36 races between them under Waller's care and five are group 1 winners.
"They are all at different points of their preparation but they have earned their place in a race like this one," Waller said. "It is hard to split them up right now and to tell you the truth we could have had Beaten Up and Bagman in the race as well. They all have group 1 targets later in the autumn but this is the right race at the right time."
Waller categorised the eight runners into three groups.You will now receive updates from Sport Newsletter Sport Newsletter

"We have a few genuine chances that are miler specialists, a few that are one run from their best run like Junoob, Foreteller and Hawkspur – specialist 2000-metre horses," Waller said. "Then you have Who Shot Thebarman and Opinion that are stayers and probably two runs away from their best."
Defending champion Boban, He's Your Man and Weary are the ones Waller thinks could give them a ninth group 1 success for the season.
"Boban might not be in his best form but he has had a good prep, he is third up over the mile and won the race before," Waller said.
"Weary has proven himself many times at weight-for-age, the mile will suit and if there is some rain around he will come right into the race.
"He's Your Man won second-up last time and I think he should be still sharp enough to be competitive over the mile. I'm banking that Contributer comes back to us a bit because he was just dominant last time, but I'm happy with my team."
Waller had another winning double at Rosehill on Wednesday to keep his winning tally ticking over courtesy of Sweet Fire and Flying Sebring. The rare Wednesday out at the Parramatta track produced a couple of well-related winners that have big futures.
Godolphin produced a Street Cry half-brother to Guelph in Inner Circle to win on debut, despite slipping over in his stall.
"He's a special colt that will only get better," John O'Shea said. "He reminds me very much of Shooting To Win at the same stage.
"We'll go to the Pago Pago [Stakes] and see what happens. We could run him again if he warrants it, otherwise spell him for the spring."
Then later in the day Norzita's half brother by Mastercraftsman, Nadir scored in the Dato Chin Nam colours. He opened his account over 1900m at his third start and will be aimed at the Australian Derby on April 4 with only one more run.
"The last horse to break his maiden in those colours here on a Wednesday was pretty handy [So You Think]," co-trainer James Cummings said.
"We will give him one more run over 2400m in either the Manion Cup or class 1 at Newcastle before going to the Derby. He is a really nice stayer."
Meanwhile, Glyn Schofield was suspended for five meetings for careless riding on Wednesday. The penalty starts on March 1 and means he misses the Black Opal at Canberra and the Randwick Guineas meeting.

Metropolitan racing in NSW is held in Sydney and it is home to four city racecourses. Randwick is their premier course with their major carnival being in March with the running of the AJC Derby over 2400 metres and Sydney Cup over 3200 metres.
Rosehill hosts a number of feature races which include the 2yo dash for cash event the Golden Slipper over 1200m and the time honoured BMW which is WFA over 2400m. Warwick Farm has limited group races and their major race is the Chipping Norton Stakes, whilst Canterbury is predominatly used for midweek and night racing.
Sydney's premier track which is very spacious and gives all horses a chance. It has an uphill run to the winning post which sorts out the contenders from the pretenders. It is home to one of Australia's toughest 1600m events the Doncaster Hcp.
Randwick is the largest track in Sydney with a 2,224 metre circumference and 401 metre straight. The inner Kensington track which races midweek is 2,100 metres around with a straight length of 401 metres.
Randwick Track Map
Circumference: 2,224 metres | Straight: 410 metres | Direction: Clockwise
The track itself offers a very good turf surface which has good drainage and can handle all types of weather conditions quite comfortably
Rosehill is home to the Golden Slipper which is the Sydney Turf Club's major race of the year and with its 408 metre long straight gives all horses a chance to win. Much like Randwick, the turf course always presents well for racing and can handle any adverse weather conditions.
Rosehill Track Map
Circumference: 2,048 metres | Straight: 408 metres | Direction: Clockwise
Constant sweeping turns with a long straight that gives every chance to horses either in front or behind. It is somewhat of a specialist track and home to the 2yo dash for cash the Golden Slipper.
Warwick Farm Racecourse
Warwick Farm is somewhat of a specialists track and suits front runners because of its sharp turns and short straight of 326 metres. Horses drawn on the inside have an advantaage and those horses who prefer to come from well back are not really suited here.
The Chipping Norton Stakes is the major race held here annually.
Warwick Farm Track Map
Circumference: 1,937 metres | Straight: 326 metres | Direction: Clockwise
Warwick Farm does not handle wet conditions that well and provides an inferior surface when wet.
Canterbury is a smallish, tight track with a circumference of of only 1,517 metres that definitely favours front runners or horses racing on the pace. The course is mainly used for Sydney night racing or midweek racing nowadays.
Canterbury Track Map
Circumference: 1,578 metres | Straight: 317 metres | Direction: Clockwise
Canterbury has an excellent drainage system that allows racing all year round easily.
