Over jumps, the leading trainer at Toulouse has been a two-horse race for the last decade. Unsurprisingly, the two leading course trainers of the last 10 years are two of France’s National Hunt powerhouses in Francois Nicolle and Guillaume Macaire, who have shared the title of champion trainer since 2003.
In the last 10 seasons, Nicolle and Macaire have finished top course trainer on 5 occasions each, with most seasons coming down to the wire and being split by very few winners or tied and decided by prize money.
Aside from the big two, Arnaud Chaille-Chaille is another trainer that warrants a great deal of respect around here having finished in the top three each season since 2011, including finishing runner up in 2015 & 2012.
It is difficult to draw any strong conclusions over the top jumps jockeys to follow at Toulouse racecourse, with no jockey riding more than 5 winners in a season since 2016.
In 2019 Gaetan Masure, Paul Moreau and Bertrand Lestrande led the way by numbers of wins with three each, Moreau taking the title of top course jockey having won the most prize money.
Lestrande who regularly rides for Guillaume Macaire finished third in 2019, only had five rides at the track, so operated with a 60% strike-rate on his rare foray to Toulouse.
Lestrande also led the way in 2018 with five course winners from 12 rides, a strike rate of 42% so it may pay to follow Lestrade if he ventures down to the south of France for a ride or two.
The story of training dominance continues over on the flat, with Jean-Claude Rouget retaining the title of leading trainer every season of the last decade except 2018.
With Rouget’s main base of operations also in the south of France, around 200km west of Toulouse, in Pau, it’s no surprise to see the yard have success at one of their more local tracks.
The only man to dethrone Rouget in the last decade was Didier Guillemin, who in 2018 had a remarkable season at Toulouse, saddling a total of 17 winners, 7 clear of Rouget.
Guillemin has finished in the top three in each of the last three trainers standings, with a strike rate of 23% across that period, and an impressive 29% in 2018, so any runners he sends to Toulouse racecourse warrants respect.
No flat jockey has been atop of the pile twice in recent seasons, with the exception of Julien Auge’s runaway success in 2019, it’s usually a closely fought affair.
Julien Auge has figured prominently in the final standings in most recent seasons and was the runaway leader in 2019 with his 15 course wins, 6 clear of his nearest rival Francois-Xavier Bertras who also finished runner up in 2016.
Other recent leading riders include Alexandre Gavilan (2018) Jean-Bernard Eyquem (2017) Hugo Journiac (2016) and Roberto Carlos-Montenegro (2015) but with most season’s going down to the wire, it’s difficult to draw any strong conclusions over jockeys to follow at Toulouse racecourse.
