The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott Story
Gai Waterhouse is certainly no stranger to winning. After a 12-year apprentice at Tulloch Lodge under her father T.J Smith, Gai recorded a winner in her first race, her first metropolitan race and her first Group One race. No mean feat: this is why Gai’s name is synonymous with success.

One might think nowadays that The Lady Trainer would rest on her laurels but Gai is determined to keep on winning. In 2007 she was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame and across 20 years of racing Gai has recorded a staggering 120 Group One wins, not far behind her father and Bart Cummings on the all-time list.

Co-Trainer Adrian Bott has always surrounded himself with thoroughbreds. Growing up at Segenhoe Stud, Adrian’s track record, passion and dedication for racing and breeding was instrumental in Gai offering the 29-year-old the much-coveted role of co-trainer at Tulloch Lodge in Randwick alongside The Lady Trainer. It took just six days after the partnership was formed for Adrian and Gai to record their first winner in the stakes company when Thronum won the ATC Rosebud-LR.
