9 Time Champion Trainer Mr Gilbert Rousset left us

The Mauritius horse racing industry has lost one of its greatest trainer, Gilbert Rousset left us in the early hours this Wednesday. He battled a long term illness. Gilbert has everyone  dressed him, was loved by all, especially the horses which he loved more than people and made an outstanding career as a trainer. His commitment to the “Sport of Kings” entitled him with 9 titles (1987, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2018 et 2020). Gilbert Rousset had a long and rich career at the Champ-de-Mars with the most wins totalling 928 which is un beating record to this day. We wish to share our deepest condolences to all his family, friends, and to all his stable colleagues and members. You will forever be remembered as the Champion Trainer with the most wins at the Champ De Mars. According the HRD website, no horses of Rousset Stable on the race cards for this weekend. We trust that the PTP will work together with the MTC to organise a memorial ceremony  this weekend to honour this great horse man and trainer. RIP Mr Rousset.
