A dynamic personality has attracted as many detractors as admirers as is so often the want of many high-achievers. Here her life is opened for inspection up to the point of her early successes as a racehorse trainer. It competently covers her childhood and adolescence with some natural emphasis on her legendary father (Sydney racehorse trainer TJ Smith) and delivers a strong point of view anent Gai's formidable opposition and travail in being granted her own trainer's license. As would be expected, this biography is fully behind Gai's push for appointment and, whether you agree or disagree with the hurdles placed in her path, it is an agreeable read. Well documented but with a penchant for confrontation, the author is a good match for the subject. Immensely readable. Quantity Available: 1.
