On 6th of April Rouget’s trained horse ZELZAL (Sea the Stars – owned by Al Shaqab racing) offered the 6000th win in Chantilly to the well-known trainer living and training in Pau-Pyrenees. It is an outstanding and unique performance throughout Europe!
Only in the USA are 5 trainers with more important scores.
Jean-Claude settled down in Pau on 1978 (24y) and it took him 38 years to achieve this performance. He trains over 200 horses in Pau (only flat racing) with over 70 owners from all the world. Actually it takes him approx. 5 years to count 1000 victories with his team, so let us wish them to continue in this brilliant form and to celebrate the 7000th win in 2021!!
