A. Perdrau

Trainer: M. Alain Perdrau

Alain Perdrau started his career as trainer for the ex Ladegourdie stable in 1984. In fact, it was a dream debut, as he went on to become champion trainer. It remains his only success in a very long career spanning over 30 years, but he has regularly finished in the top six, and has saddled numerous champion horses, one of them being Botanique, who was champion horse in 1994 and 1995. 2015 was more than a satisfactory season for the veteran trainer, finishing in 6th position in the Trainers' Premiership with 23 wins. The highlight of the season saw him notch up his 600th win, which came courtesy of Nordic Warrior in race meeting 31 in November.
