Veteran globetrotting jockey Gerald Mosse is planning to start training with the provisional goal of sending his first riders in 2023.
The Frenchman has won headlining races around the world, clinching nearly every Group One title in his home country and Britain by completing the King’s Stand and double Nunthorpe aboard Nuclear Debate in 2000.
Previously held back by the Aga Khan, Mosse has won each of the French Classics at least twice and has also had huge success in Hong Kong, fun multiple wins in top-notch competitions over the course of a long career.
At 54 the jockey is one of the oldest in the industry and has laid the groundwork for his next career move by taking the necessary modules to take a training license.
While Mosse has no plans to hang up his boots, the change is certainly underway with Chantilly as the proposed location for his future training base.
“I just took the exams and I’m waiting for the results, but I’m not going to train now,” Mosse said.
“I just want to get my coach’s license, put it in my pocket and wait for the right moment to do it.
“I will continue to drive because it is my hobby. I will continue to drive a little longer and maybe the opportunity will come (to start training), but for the moment I will continue to drive.
“I think it will be in Chantilly, I’m looking for something and I’m negotiating, but nothing is confirmed yet.
“I think it will be 2023 and then I’ll stop driving.”
