French champion trainer Jean-Claude Rouget is undergoing treatment for lymphoma and is taking a two-month break from training, Paris Turf reported on Saturday. He is 70.

Rouget and his family released a statement to the publication which read, “Jean-Claude Rouget will finally be absent from the racecourses for the next two months. Medical examinations led to the diagnosis of lymphoma. Perfectly supported medically, he was immediately taken care of with an adapted care protocol. He is optimistic and hopes that this salary will allow him to resume his public duties as soon as possible. His two assistants, Jean-René Dubosc (Pau), Jean-Bernard Roth (Deauville) and the whole team are mobilized to ensure the smooth running of the stables. Jean-Claude Rouget aspires to the strictest respect for this period of rest which will keep him away from his public life. He will not respond to any calls and thanks everyone for the signs of sympathy shown to him.”
