Trainer: M. Gilbert Rousset

As trainer for Hugues Maigrot Stable in 1987, Gilbert Rousset played a big part in the stable winning the championship that season. He experienced a tough start when he opened his own stable, but the last 5 seasons have been glorious. He scored a hat-trick of Stable championships from 2009-2011, plus another in 2013 which have also included several classic wins, in conjunction with Johnny Geroudis. Great Gusto (1987), Mr Brock (2008) and Disa Leader (2010) are the three horses that have been champion horses under the tutelage of Gilbert Rousset. 2015 saw him finish runner-up in the Trainers' Premiership, although he bagged the most wins with 51, and also became the leading marksman on Mauritian soil. He will want to egain the Championship crown in 2016.
