She wore her characteristic honey blonde bob pushed aside.
In the meantime, Robbie looked smart in a white shirt, a navy blazer and gray pants.
The couple have been married for almost four decades (39 years), and their romance showed no signs of delay, such as the cosiness of each on the red carpet.
BFF & # 39; s: & # 39; Aren't we best friends? & # 39; Robbie is quoted as Gai in a racing queen pofile to ask The Australia, & # 39; Yes, & # 39; Gai replied, adding sweetly: & # 39; Very sorry. & # 39;
In a photo Robbie lovingly put his arm around his wife, which evoked a broad smile from the esteemed horse trainer.
Also present at the event was the couple's son, Tom Waterhouse, who looked particularly slick in a three-piece gray suit.
Gai and Robbie share two children together, Tom, 37 and sister Kate Waterhouse, 35.
Bad Grandma: Gai told Vogue that she has trouble keeping her work and family life in balance and joked that she is not a & # 39; good grandma & # 39; is. Depicted in 2017 with granddaughter Rose Waterhouse

& # 39; We are best friends, right? & # 39; It is said that Robbie asks Gai as he scooped up his breakfast cereal: & # 39; Yes, & # 39; Gai replied, adding sweetly: & # 39; Very sorry. & # 39;

Jokingly he added: & # 39; but since then I have fallen & # 39 ;, selflessly second on the important ladder behind Gai & # 39; s beloved King-Charles-spaniel-poodle cross, Bello.
Gai admitted to Vogue in 2015 that she is struggling to keep her work and family life in balance and joked that she is not a & # 39; good grandma & # 39; is.
& # 39; I haven't had enough time with my granddaughters, & # 39; she said and added: & # 39; I am very connected to the horses and I am also very connected to Rob, my husband. So I don't get the time I should. & # 39;
Gai, who won her first Melbourne Cup in 2013 with her horse Fiorente, will win another victory this year with her two runners: Yao Dash and Mister Songman.
