Gai Waterhouse

Trainer Profile

Gai Waterhouse
Gai Waterhouse (maiden name Gabriel Marie Smith) was born in Scotland on 2 September 1954. Even though Waterhouse's achildhood was dominated by the world of horse racing as her father was the legendary Randwick trainer TJ Smith, the lure of modeling and acting was far more attractive to her. She successfully explored these avenues, appearing in the Australian drama "The Young Doctors", and then moved to England and featured in "Doctor Who: The Invasion of Time".

Upon her return to Australia, she succumbed to horse racing, and studied under her father for 15 years as an apprentice, before obtaining her own license in 1992, and, in due course taking the title of Randwick's leading trainer. In the season of 1994-1995, her father became ill, and conceded the Tulloch Lodge stable to her.

Waterhouse hit the big time at the Melbourne Cup in 1995, when Nothin' Leica Dane won the race, just three days after winning the Victoria Derby. This was the first three year-old to have done so since Skipton in 1941.

Proving that she wasn't just a pretty face, Waterhouse equaled her fathers training record, by concluding the 2002/03 season with 156 metropolitan wins. Waterhouse continued to produce excellent results and by the beginning of 2007 she notched up her 75th win in Group One races for the Gai Waterhouse stable at Tulloch Lodge, and was also inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in November of the same year.
