Trainer: M. Henri Maingard

Formerly an engineer in the automobile industry, Ricky Maingard made his name as a trainer in South Africa. He met with plenty of success, including in prestigious races such as the July Handicap. After 40 years there, he decided to return to Mauritius to continue his career.

Since debuting in 2007, he has not been slow to show what he is capable of and has managed to taste victory in all four classic races.

Horses such as Ice Axe – winner of the very first edition of the MTC Bicentenary Trophy and 2012 Maiden Cup – Tales Of Bravery, Casey’s War, One Cool Dude, Alitalia, Parachute Man and Alshibaa have all won very important races for him.

If 2020 was full of satisfaction for this veteran trainer, he will hope for more of the same in 2021.
