Trainer: GAI WATERHOUSE & ADRIAN BOTT
Gai’s first runner in a race won. Her first runner in a metropolitan race won. Her first runner in a Group One race won. Gai Waterhouse first runner in a jumps race won. Considering the education Gai received during her 12 year apprentice with T.J. leading up to January 1992, it is little wonder the Lady Trainer was an instant success. Since Gai’s humble beginnings as a solo trainer in January 1992. Gai Waterhouse has gone on to achieve as much as humanly possible with racehorses. While many would rest on their laurels after such success, Gai Waterhouse simply wants to win more and more.
Rest assured that the Lady Trainer wants to win races just as much if not more than they do! As we stand, in just over 20 years of training, Gai Waterhouse has amassed over 120 Group One wins and currently sits third on the all-time list (Group One winners) behind T.J. Smith and Bart Cummings.
Gai has won Sydney’s two best races, the Golden Slipper and Doncaster Handicap six and seven times respectively. Gai is by far the most successful trainer ever in the Sydney Spring. ‘Make hay while the sun shines’ is a phrase one often can hear Gai quoting. This attitude is reflected by Gai’s results in the best races contested during the Sydney Spring Carnival. The Flight Stakes (7 wins), the Epsom Handicap (7 wins) and the Metropolitan Handicap (8 wins) have become races at the mercy of Gai each and every year.
Gai Waterhouse gives each and every horse that comes into her care every possible chance to succeed. Only six horses in the history of Sydney racing have won the two-year-old Triple Crown and Gai Waterhouse has trained two of them (Dance Hero 2004 and Pierro 2012). Gai in fact has won more Group One races with two-year-olds than any other trainer.
