Age: 32. Alexis Badel hails from a racing tradition, his mother being trainer Myriam Bollack-Badel and his father, former jockey Alain Badel. He was France's Champion Apprentice in 2007 and broke into the top 10 in the premiership in just his second year riding with 60 winners. Badel's first Group race win came aboard Norse King in the October, 2013 G2 Prix du Conseil de Paris. He was appointed as the second retained rider for The Aga Khan behind Christophe Soumillon at the beginning of the 2015 racing season and went on to record his most successful season to date with 104 wins. That saw him obtain seventh position in the French Championship. He debuted at Sha Tin with two mounts on 11 December, 2016. His first Hong Kong winner was Supreme Profit on 27 December, 2016 and he ended that maiden two-month stint with seven wins. He returned in the 2017/18 season, landing 14 wins. Following his second campaign in Hong Kong, Badel returned for a third short-term stint and landed 26 wins in under four months. Badel is back again on another full-season license having amassed 58 wins in the 2020/21 season - his best haul to date. In that season he scored his first G1 win in Hong Kong when partnering Wellington to land the Chairman's Sprint Prize, while his first G1 win came aboard Nonza in the 2018 Prix Jean Romanet at Deauville. He won eight Group races in 2021/22 season, including twice on G1 level in the Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup and back-to-back Chairman's Sprint Prize aboard Wellington.
