Dual South African apprentice champion and reigning champion jockey in Mauritius, Nooresh Juglall has died following a race fall.

Jockey Nooresh Juglall has died following a race fall at Champ de Mars racecourse in Mauritius.

The reigning champion jockey was riding in his third and final race of the first meeting back in Mauritius when his mount Rule The Night crashed at the 300m mark.

Rushed to hospital, Juglall was put on life support, but died a few hours later, two months shy of his 30th birthday.

Mauritian-born, Juglall grew up in the tiny village of Sainte Croix, and preferring horses to books he left for South Africa, with a poor command of English, to join the South African Jockey Academy, outside of Durban, in 2009.

Juglall had his first ride on November 8, 2009, and rode his first winner four months later, at Turffontein on March 16, 2010 and later went on to become a dual South African champion apprentice.

Four years later, Juglall secured a licence to ride in Singapore where he would stay until April 2019.

He had a successful stint during that five-year period as a sought-after lightweight jockey, riding mainly for Patrick Shaw, and subsequently Ricardo Le Grange when Shaw retired in 2016 while on moving to Mauritius, he rode on a retainer for champion trainer Gilbert Rousset

Juglall leaves behind wife Chaaya and two young boys Aryan and Ahaan while his younger brother Tejash now also rides in Mauritius.

In all Juglall rode just shy of 550 winners in Mauritius, Singapore and South Africa and also had a solitary victory in Qatar to his credit while he filled a gap in Hong Kong when jockey numbers were short in 2016, but did not ride a winner.
