Maxime Guyon
Age: 34
Background:
Maxime Guyon rode on the pony circuit in France and attended Le Moulin a Vent jockey school in Gouvieux, after which he started his career with Andre Fabre in 2005. Fabre once said he believed his protege had the innate talent to become one of the best jockeys of all time. After gaining his senior licence in January 2008, Guyon's career blossomed quickly and he achieved his first G1 win on Cavalryman in the 2009 Grand Prix de Paris. His haul of wins includes no less than 32 at G1 level, among them four European classics. He enjoyed a rewarding first stint in Hong Kong during the 2010/11 season when he successfully partnered Horse of the Year Ambitious Dragon to win the Hong Kong Classic Cup and Hong Kong Derby. Guyon won his third French Champion Jockey title this year, after securing his first and second titles in 2019 and 2022, respectively.
