Career

Piechulek earned his first jockey license in Germany in 2004.

In 2021, Piechulek won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe with Torquator Tasso. The riding crop he used in that race was a gift that Filip Minařík, who had recently retired at the time, gave to him from Japan.

In 2024, Piechulek came to Japan as a jockey for the first time using the short term license policy. He secured his first victory in Japan after 32 starts on January 14 when Roselle won R12 of the Nakayama Racecourse that day. He later won his first JRA graded race on February 4 when he won the Kisaragi Sho with Byzantine Dream [ja]. On February 16, the JRA announced that he would be cancelling his short-term license with the JRA as of February 18.
