Trainer: M. Alain Perdrau

Alain Perdrau holds the record for being the longest serving trainer at Champ de Mars. He burst onto the scene in 1984 with the ex-Ladegourdie stable and became champion trainer that same season.

He may not have won another championship since, but he has continued to excel with his consistency. Horses like classic winners Botanique and World Focus, as well as the prolific Sentinal and Nordic Warrior, have represented him with flying colours

His 2019 campaign may have seen him score only 10 winners, but he did unearth a new gem in Rule The Night. He trained him to the Sprinters' Championship, as well as being one of three co-winners of the Three-Year old series.

Trainer since: 1984

Stables : Perdrau, Ladegourdie (1984) and Desvaux (1985)

Record (as at December 31st 2019) 666 wins and 1565 places for 5330 nominations with gains amounting to Rs 92,165,875
