Trainer: M. Amar Sewdyal

Even if he is a new name in the Trainers' circuit, Amar Sewdyal is well known for his association with former trainer Hugues Maigrot Jr, whom he worked for at the Guy Desmarais Training Centre in Floreal.

He learned a lot from working with the latter, and also from one of the owners - Edouard Nairac. He considers them as good horsemen and also as his mentors. He also learned about the sport, while he was in Ireland.

After being absent for a few years following the closure of Hugues Maigrot Jr's yard, he joined Shyam Hurchund, where he gained further useful experience.

It is safe to say that he impressed in his debut season, saddling 20 winners, while he was very prolific in the second half of 2018, including winning his first Group race with Wild Horizon in the Group 2 Colonel Draper Cup. On what he has shown so far, he should be watched very closely this season.
