New role for Gerald Mosse
Gerald Mosse has been signed up by Phoenix Thoroughbreds as their retained jockey.
Mosse, 50, will link up with the new Luxembourg-based investment group, which has been active at the sales with purchases being sent to Bob Baffert and Jeremy Noseda.
"I am very pleased and grateful to have the opportunity to become part of the Phoenix Thoroughbreds team," said Mosse.
"It is a very exciting project and one that I will be very committed to. We have bought some very nice-looking individuals at the sales during the spring and I look forward to getting know the horses over the coming months.
"And, of course, I hope that this season and beyond that I can play a part in delivering success to Phoenix, both with the work I will put in with the horses at home and on the racecourse."
Phoenix is in the process of becoming the first regulated thoroughbred investment fund in the world and already has operations in six countries with a number of partners, including individuals and businesses.
Kerri Radcliffe, Europe and USA bloodstock and racing advisor for Phoenix Thoroughbreds, said: "We are so fortunate to have Gerald Mosse joining us.
"He is a top-class rider and his skills on the racecourse and also feedback from the gallops will be invaluable to Phoenix Thoroughbreds.
"He has already been a massive help over the last couple of days, riding out in Newmarket, and I look forward to working closely with him in the future."
