The Australian Turf Club congratulates Royal Randwick trainer Gai Waterhouse on being inducted into the Sport Australia Hall Of Fame – one of only five trainers to receive this honour.

In joining her legendary trainer father TJ Smith in the Sport Australia Hall Of Fame, Gai’s own record as a trainer is already remarkable.

Seven Sydney training premierships, 138 Group 1 winners (third on the all-time Australian list), and just to single out a few of Sydney’s major races:

· A record six Golden Slippers (equal with TJ Smith);
· A record seven Doncaster Handicaps (equal with TJ);
· An outright record eight Metropolitan Handicaps;
· A record seven Epsom Handicaps (equal with TJ).

Along with such a long list of achievements on the track, we also salute the role Gai plays as an ambassador for our great sport.

Gai is perhaps the most famous face today in Australian racing, and she tirelessly continues to bring more people to the races, either to the track or watching on television and across all media.

Australian Turf Club Chief Executive Jamie Barkley said: “ATC is very proud to call Gai one of our premier trainers, and we warmly congratulate her on this well-deserved honour.

“We also acknowledge her whole stable in partnership with Adrian Bott and all of their team as one of Sydney racing’s greatest assets.”
