After completing a work placement on Darley Flying Start with Gai Waterhouse, Emma accepted the position as Assistant Racing Manager to the Australian Hall of Fame trainer after graduating the program. Emma’s role involves liaising with owners and keeping them up to date on the progress of their horses, including daily trackwork and tactics on racedays. In order to stay up to date with Gai’s bustling stable, Emma attends track work daily. She goes to the races on Saturdays, as well as Gai’s open houses for owners at Tulloch Lodge Stable on Sundays. She works closely with Racing Manager and fellow Darley Flying Start alumnus, Adrian Bott.
