Trainer: M. Gilbert Rousset

Gilbert Rousset holds the record for the number of wins by a trainer at Champ de Mars. Added to the fact that he has won plenty of classic races and Championships, it is safe to say that this veteran trainer has been very successful.

Under his tutelage, Great Gusto (1987), Mr Brock (2008), Disa Leader (2010) and Patrol Officer (2020) have all been crowned Champion horse, while Intercontinental won the 2013 Maiden Cup, after debuting his career in the lower categories.

2020 was a season full of success. Not only was he crowned Champion trainer, but he also trained the champion horse - Patrol Officer, and the co-winners of the Four-Year old Championship - Rule The Night and Alyaasaat.

It will not be that much of a surprise if he retains his crown in 2021.
