Veteran French jockey Gerald Mosse has enjoyed great success around the world, especially France and Hong Kong, and in recent years has based himself in Britain. He is usually easy to identify in a race as he is famed for always wearing white gloves.
Mosse first sat on a horse at the age of 3 and, now 54, is one of the senior jockeys in the weighing room.
The big winners have flowed for him since 1988 when he won the French Oaks on Restless Kara, while he partnered Saumarez to land the 1990 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe a couple of years later. He has won each of the French Classics at least twice.
Mosse is also famed for his partnership with the outstanding juvenile Arazi and he landed Australia’s most famous race, the Melbourne Cup, on Americain in 2010.
His exploits in the QIPCO British Champions Series included winning the 2011 Group 1 Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot on Immortal Verse.
