ARB Chairman Comments 2: Waterhouse Comments "Unhelpful"
Following the publication of comments attributed to trainer Gai Waterhouse on the subject of a possible merger between Sydney Clubs, the AJC & STC, Australian Racing Board chairman Bob Bentley said: "Comments that have been attributed to Gai Waterhouse (in the press) were less than helpful. Bluntly put, Gai's future is not at risk here. Even in the wasteland that is the UK Racing industry, where bookmakers and betting exchanges paying a pittance to racing dominate, there are a handful of big name trainers like Luca Cumani who continue to do well, but for the rank and file of the industry things are extremely grim. I don't want to see that happen here."
