M. Shyam Hurchund

Trainer: M. Shyam Hurchund

Shyam Hurchund obtained a Trainer's licence for 2016. He is not well known here in Mauritius, as he has spent most of his career in South Africa, where he was studying engineering and which also led him to work in Horse-Racing.

An owner of horses, he then studied the workings of horse training. Following this, he became assistant-trainer to Tony Rivalland - who is also of Mauritian origin - in 2008.

As 2016 was his first season as a fully fledged trainer, Shyam Hurchund considered it as a year of adaptation, rather than a year with high expectations. This season, he will be looking to progress.

Trainer since: 2016

Stable: S.Hurchund

Record (as at 31st December 2016): 4 wins and 25 places for 89 nominations and gains amounting to Rs 1,320,000

Jockey: J. Bardotier
