Unstoppable trainer Chris Waller has continued a spring carnival to remember with Japonisme winning the Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington.

In Waller’s first Group One win for one of Australia’s best-known racing families, Japonisme carried the cerise silks made famous by champions Octagonal and Lonhro who were raced by Bob Ingham and his late brother Jack.

“Mr Ingham will be sitting at home very proud and very appreciative of that,” Waller said.

Settling on the inside of runners, Japonisme ($21) stayed on the rail under Glyn Schofield before holding out Keen Array ($13) and his Waller-trained stablemate Counterattack ($11).

It took Waller’s tally of Group One wins for the season to eight and follows his Cox Plate victory last week with Winx.

Waller has now won the past three Coolmores with Zoustar saluting in 2013 before Brazen Beau’s victory last year.

Godolphin colt Exosphere was sent out the $1.60 favourite.

Settling worse than midfield, Exosphere improved to be within striking distance at the 300m but his run ended soon after and he finished fourth.

Schofield said he gave Japonisme a better chance than his odds suggested.

“I was pretty confident coming into today’s race even though he was probably not in the market,” the jockey said.

“It was soft in the end. He’s pretty much untapped.”
