Trainer: M. Simon Jones
Simon Jones has a very long career in horse racing, not only as a jockey, but for having also worked and collaborated with different trainers.
Originally from Australia, he started his career as an apprentice-jockey in 1977, for trainer Brian Mayfield in Sydney.
He then rode for the likes of G.E.Purcell, E.F.Cameron, Charles Leck, and in Malaysia and was also a Club Jockey in Macau.
In Mauritius, he has worked with Guy Fok, Patrick Merven, Alain Perdrau, Richard Duval, Serge Henry, Chitranjan Ramdin, Budheswar Gujadhur and Shailesh Ramdin, as jockey, stable-supervisor and assistant-trainer.
His debut season as a fully fledged trainer was more than honourable, scoring 13 winners. He will be hoping to do even better this season.
