Career Profile
Born on June 6, 1968, Dominique Boeuf is the son of the former jumps jockey and trainer Georges Boeuf and is married to Julie, the niece of former top French jockey Alain Lequeux. Boeuf was initially apprenticed to Pierre Biancone and then Patrick Biancone, he rode his first winner, Maydi, at Le Croise Laroche on September 15 1984. He became Champion Apprentice in 1985 with 30 winners and his 100th winner came at Deauville in 1987. He secured a retainer to ride for leading owner Daniel Wildenstein in 1991 and became Champion Jockey with 143 winners. After that however, his career began on a downward spiral as a result of involvement with drugs and in 1995 he was sentenced to three years imprisonment for his role in a drug ring, that punishment later commuted to a suspended term. He lost the retainer to Wildenstein but managed to fight back and in 1997 rode 127 winners and in 1998 regained his French Jockeys' Championship with 175 winners. He made it three Championships in 2001 when making up a deficit of 20 winners in seven weeks after the leader Olivier Peslier left France early to ride in Japan. In May 2001 he was given the chance to ride for Wildenstein again when the owner transferred his horses from Andre Fabre to Ellie Lellouche and the combination struck immediate success with Bright Sky winning the Prix de Diane and Aquarelliste the Prix Ganay. Boeuf continued his successful partnership with Bright Sky winning the 2003 Prix d'Astarte and ending the season with a fourth place in the Hong Kong Cup. Boeuf ended the 2003 season in France in third place with 149 wins.
