Gai Waterhouse has become an icon to Australian racegoers. A dynamic personality has attracted as many detractors as admirers as is so often the want of many high-achievers. Here her life is opened for inspection up to the point of her early successes as a racehorse trainer. It competently covers her childhood and adolescence with some natural emphasis on her legendary father (Sydney racehorse trainer TJ Smith) and delivers a strong point of view anent Gai’s formidable opposition and travail in being granted her own trainer’s license.
