MAURITIUS: Cahill Leaves But Door Open For Peter Hall

Bookmark and Share

Monday, 15 February 2010: Australian jockey Matthew Cahill will not return to Mauritius this year but a stable contract is open for Perth jockey Peter Hall.

Cahill has ridden successfully in Mauritius for the past two seasons, riding a total of 32 winners.

In the 2009 season he rode 16 winners while linked to the Hugues Maigrot stable but he will not take up a contract with the trainer this year after deciding to to stay at his country home in NSW.

Maigrot, who has acquired 13 new horses from overseas for his stable, has confirmed that he is looking for a new stable jockey.

Hall has been offered the position of stable jockey for Patrick Merven.

He is expected in Mauritius by mid-March if he gets the green light from the Mauritius Jockey Club licensing committee.

Leading rider Glen Hatt, who won the Group One J & B Met at Kenilworth in South Africa on January 28 aboard River Jetez, is expected to be fit for the start of the Mauritius season on March 27.

Hatt has injured an ankle but will resume riding work early next month and will be riding for the Alain Perdrau stable.

Perdrau has also built up his stable with 10 new horses from South Africa.

The Guy Fok stable has made an official request to sign French jockey Gaëtan Faucon for the 2010 season.

Faucon was co-champion jockey in 2008 with Sherman Brown and he finished second last year behind Australian rider Shane Dye.

Trainer Raj Ramdin intends to sign Yashin Emamdee, who rode 10 winners in 2009 before an injury ended his season.
