Just like Maxime Guyon and Mickael Barzalona, Pierre-Charles Boudot is making quite a name for himself under the watchful eye of legendary French trainer Andre Fabre.
He is the son of Marc Boudot, a well known trainer in central France who died of a brain tumour at the premature age of 55 in January 2008.
After attending the jockeys’ school at Govieux, Boudot was apprenticed to Fabre and he registered the first win of his career on 19 April 2009 as Pampeana triumphed at Meral.
Boudot enjoyed a first Pattern victory when Brigantin landed the Group 3 Prix de Lutece in September 2010 and made his debut in Group 1 company in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot in June 2011, when Brigantin stayed on well to take third behind Fame And Glory.
In 2015, he rode his first Group 1 winner in Britain and Series win as he partnered Esoterique to victory in the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket. On November 22, 2016, he chalked up a new European Flat record when a four-timer at Chantilly saw him post his 275th winner of the year.
2019 was a hugely successful year in the Series for Boudot. He enjoyed a victory aboard Watch Me in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot whilst also picking up two seconds (including aboard The Revenant at QIPCO British Champions Day) and three thirds, resulting in his most successful year in the Series so far.
