Elie Lellouche

Elie Lellouche (born March 5, 1952 in Tunis) is a French trainer of Thoroughbred racehorses and jockeys.

After having modest success as a jockey, in 1979 Lellouche obtained his horse trainer's license. He had reasonable achievements and built a reputation good enough that in the 1990s the prominent Wildenstein Stables shifted forty-two of their horses from André Fabre to Lellouche's care. The move brought considerable success and raised his reputation even further that helped attract other owners to bring quality horses to his training facilities at Chantilly.

For Spanish owner/breeder Enrique Sarasola, Lellouche trained Helissio, the 1996 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner. More recently, the Wildenstein Stable's colt, Westerner, became the first French-trained winner of Britain's Ascot Gold Cup in almost thirty years and was voted the Cartier Racing Award as Europe's Top Stayer in 2004 and 2005.

Lellouche is also known for coaching successful French jockey Dominique Boeuf.
