Gai Waterhouse
FameRank: 6

"Gabriel Marie "Gai" Waterhouse" is an Australian horse trainer and businesswoman. The daughter of Tommy J. Smith, a leading trainer of Thoroughbred racehorses, Waterhouse was born in Scotland but raised in Sydney. After graduating from the University of New South Wales, she worked as an actor for a time, appearing in both Australian and English television series. Having worked under her father for a period of 15 years, Waterhouse was granted an Australian Jockey Club (AJC) licence in 1992, and trained her first Group One (G1) winner later that year. In 1994, after her father became ill, she took over his Tulloch Lodge stable, and she has since trained over 100 G1 winners and won seven Sydney trainers' premierships. She was also the trainer of Fiorente, the winner of the 2013 Melbourne Cup, becoming the second woman (and first Australian woman) to train a winner of that race. Waterhouse was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in 2007, and has been described as the "first lady of Australian racing".

A disgrace. If it's hard it's hard, if it's soft it's soft.

He's got another 10 days after tomorrow to run in the Saab (Quality) or Mackinnon (Stakes) to get into the cup. He's a very exciting horse and I think he can do it.

The owners want to run her in the Epsom Handicap then we'll look at Melbourne and the Cox Plate.

Desert War is thriving in Melbourne. He's actually put on weight since he's been down there and it's not fat, it's pure muscle.

Diego Garcia's performance was very good because he struck trouble.

It was him being a goose. What a phenomenal run, did you see his stride?

Desert War is a great chance. I'd rate his chances as better than Juggler and All Our Mob and they almost won the race.

My horse produced a terrific run.

She won't be nominated for the George Main.
