Jacques Doyasbère (Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, Val-de-Marne, 26 December 1919 - Paris, 3 November 1969) was a French thoroughbred racing jockey.[1]

One of his country's top jockeys of all time, Doyasbère rode for such prominent owners as Marcel Boussac and François Dupré. During his career, he won virtually every important race in France more than once including a record four wins in the country's most prestigious event, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
