Gai Waterhouse (Randwick – Tulloch Lodge)
Pierro’s progeny are coming
Pierro left Tulloch Lodge for a career in the breeding barn many moons ago. We were of course all sad to see him go, but at the same time we knew it would not be long until his progeny started arriving into the stable.
Pierro was retired having never run a bad race, and short of Black Caviar who he never faced, he comprehensively, and in some cases regularly beat the next three or four best horses in the country. More Joyous, All Too Hard, Epaulette, Snitzerland, Dear Demi, Your Song and Shoot Out unless they are facing each other, generally started favourite or second favourite in the majority of their races.
They are all proven gun horses and they all share one thing in common; they were all beaten by Pierro. The son of Lonhro was a champion and if he is half as good at stud as he was on the track, the Australian racing industry is in for generations of quality horses with class, heart and a will to win.
* Currently sits third on the all-time list of most winning Group 1 trainers.
* Third trainer in history to prepare 100-plus Sydney metropolitan winners in one season (season 1996-97 104.5 wins)
* Trained the 2001 Golden Slipper trifecta with Ha Ha, Excellerator and Red Hannigan, a feat never before or since achieved in this race.
* Gai shared a then record with her father T.J. Smith of 156 metropolitan winners in a season, in 2002-03. This was achieved after just ten years of training.
* Has trained two of the six horses to have won the Triple Crown for two-year-olds (Dance Hero 2004 and Pierro 2012).
* Equalled her late father TJ Smith’s record for the most Golden Slipper winners with Gai training her sixth winner in 2015 with Champion colt Vancouver.
