Paul de Chevigny racing stable
Training, breaking in, pre-training
Paul de Chevigny
From a racing background, Paul soon decide to follow-up the family tradition. He studies an agriculture course while riding successufully as an amateur on the flat.
Wishing to broaden his racing knowledge, Paul flies to New-Zealand to work for Windsor Park Stud where he is kept busy prepping yearlings for the sales and breaking-in.
In 2012, he finally decide to fly on his own and set up his own racing stable on the family property at Saint Corneille.
Paul takes care of a reasonable size yard in order to treat each horses as individuals to best answer owners expectations and bring horses to the best of their abilities.
He then decide after a 10 month stint with the kiwis to visit their trans-tasman neighbours and drop its suitcases in Australia in 2002 where he will eventually stay over a 8 years period. He first works for Lindsay Park Stud (David Hayes) where he rides for the breaking-in, pre-training and finally training yard.
He is eventually spotted by D.L Freedman in 2006 who offers him a job as foreman for his pre-traning facilities where he has 50 horses under his care. In 2008 he is promoted to a travelling foreman position for the leading racing yard, a job he will cherish until his departure in 2010. During that time he is lucky enough to work with top class racehorses including Makybe Diva (3 times Melbourne Cup winner), Mummify (Caufiled Cup), and Miss Andretti (King's Stand stakes).
In France, Paul widens his experiences by short stints with Etienne Leenders, Domonique Sepulchre and Marcel Rolland as well as Ed Dunlop in England.
