Alexis Badeli

Alexis Badel is a talented Frenchman with a rich racing background with his mother Myriam Bollack-Badel a trainer and his father Alain Badel a jockey. He first started coming to Hong Kong in 2016, having winter stints for four seasons before making the full-time move to Sha Tin in 2020-21. 


Alexis Badel concedes it is ‘a bit of a gamble’, but there is a precedent of a galloper winning the four-year-old series opener off a Bauhinia Sprint Trophy run

Star speedster’s regular rider says Jockey Club Sprint favourite’s increasing maturity makes it ‘even easier to use his great ability’ on the track

Frenchman is in the enviable position of being the incumbent rider of three-time Group One winner Wellington and the rising star, who runs at Sha Tin on Saturday

With regular partner Blake Shinn unable to make the weight, the French rider teams up with Wellington’s trainer Richard Gibson in the Group Three Sha Tin Vase

With the Magic Man out of action for the next two meetings, there are plenty of nice mounts up for grabs and the Frenchman has the pick of the bunch at Sha Tin on Sunday

French rider is hunting down Karis Teetan for a podium finish in the jockeys’ title race but he misses Sha Tin as he serves his fifth suspension of the season

The Frenchman has seven rides at the midweek meeting before turning his attention to Sunday’s features, where he will partner Naboo Attack and Tourbillon Diamond

The six-year-old produces a brilliant run to take out Friday’s National Day Cup, giving the Australian his first feature win in the city since Ain’t Here in November 2004

The Frenchman pleads guilty to failing to take all reasonable and permissible measures to achieve the best possible result aboard V Chevaliers at Sha Tin on June 6
