Simon Jones has had a very long career in horse racing, not only as a jockey, but for having also worked and collaborated with different trainers.

Originally from Australia, he started his career as an apprentice-jockey in 1977, for trainer Brian Mayfield in Sydney. He then rode for the likes of G.E.Purcell, E.F.Cameron, Charles Leck, and in Malaysia and was also Club Jockey in Macau.

In Mauritius, he has worked with Guy Fok, Patrick Merven, Alain Perdrau, Richard Duval, Serge Henry, Chitranjan Ramdin, Budheswar Gujadhur and Shailesh Ramdin, as jockey, stable-supervisor and assistant-trainer.

He became a fully-fledged trainer in 2016 and it was an honourable season, as he trained 13 winners. He did even better in 2017, scoring 21 wins. After tough campaigns in 2018 and 2019, he had a far better 2020 season, scoring 25 wins and even had the best strike rate.
