Gai Waterhouse: Woman In A Man's World

Gai Waterhouse has earned a conspicuous place as one of Australia's best-known and admired women. As the glamorous daughter of the legendary trainer TJ Smith, horses and racing were always in her blood. But when she sought to follow in her father's footsteps, the male domain of racing turned against her, and the all-powerful Australian Jockey Club refused her a trainer's licence because of her marriage to warned-off bookmaker Robbie Waterhouse. Her long struggle against the establishment in the intensely chauvinistic racing scene created history as she finally won out against prejudice and discrimination.

Now hailed as the leading Randwick trainer and one of the most outstanding in the world after only five years, she's beaten the men at their own game.

This is the story of a remarkable woman - an inspiration to all who hold dear their ambitions and rights as individuals.
