Tarbes Top Course Jockeys

Each of the last five seasons has seen a different jockey finish atop of the standing at the end of the season, with few names figuring prominently year on year.

With a small number of race days each year, it typically only takes approximately 5 or 6  winners to finish as top course jockey at Tarbes, which was achieved by Mlle Lily Le Pemp in 2019 with 6 winners.

A breakthrough season for Le Pemp at Tarbes, with just two winners combined in the last four seasons at the track, it’ll be interesting to see how she fares in 2020.

Valentine Seguy could be the more consistent jockey around Tarbes riding multiple winners in each of the last three seasons, with five his best haul in 2018.
