Did Gai, when she was solo, ever have any of her horses in big races ridden like Amphritite and Land of Plenty were today from wide barriers?

I recall James McDonald riding one of he 2yos in a big race like that from an impossible gate, and it motored home and nearly won - and then she gave him a very public rollicking for not giving it a chance, and he should always lead at all cost (he was smirking all the way through her berating him too!) ... when he started riding big race winners with monotomous regularity, she also spoke up and claimed the credit for "making him the jockey he is" ... what an arrogant, out of touch, self promoting, entitled flog she has always been.

Very deserving of the award - hope she's enjoying retirement.Clap

I wonder what it would be like since Weir and Waller started training seriuosly?

Don't forget, they didn't inherit a stable and owners and the old "one bid strategy" ... that gets you plenty of good ones!Wink

They had to start from scratch, earn it all with hard work and talent and with much cheaper horses ... not that i care, now that she's been forced out of training ... just sayin' 

Very much deserved award ... still don't understand why the UN is still holding off with the humanitarian award!!!??Confused

Softy, I have shared some stories I have been told direct from a friend who had group horses with Gai, Mayfield Smith and Freedmans back in the day ... I don't know what devices or concoctions they did or didn't get caught with, but I have a direct insight into how they operate, and the ethics they possess ... Horse racing is a bit like the Climate Alarm Industry ... they all have a vested interest in making it seem something that it is not! ... let's just leave it at that shall we!Wink

For full disclosure you will need to negotiate a price for an interview through Stormy's Creepy Porn Star Lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

That is something for her to celebrate 🥂

LOL  A clever vet for TJ, and lots of overseas trips for Gai worked wonders.  Not to mention poor lab testing back when. 
What did someone say on here somewhere awhile ago now ?
TJ was on a cruise ship coming home from America, and dropped a little glass tube on the deck , and the ship got home 3 weeks ahead of time Tongue

It must be a lot easier to train a Melbourne Cup and Golden Slipper Winner than I first thought.
Might get the pony out of the back paddock and have a go myself.
