DAMIEN DE WATRIGANT STABLE

THE TRAINING CENTRE

Damien trains on the family property of Artassenx. He was naturally drawn into the sport from a young age. He started as an amateur jockey before going on to spend multiple years as assistant trainer to Criquette Head in Chantilly and Paul Cole in Great Britain. He returned to France and, after his military service, he took out his trainer’s licence in 2002 with a view to growing and continuing on the work of his father.

Damien had his first winner in 2003 which was followed 30 minutes later by his second winner. That same year, he saddled his first Gr1 PA runner in Deauville with Kerjam for Sheikh Mishal Bin Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani.
In 2004, he had his first Gr1 PA winner in Deauville for Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed with Djezika.
