Hogg, Scotland’s all-time leading try scorer, announced his retirement from the sport with immediate effect last July amid struggles with fitness.
His romance with Mayor emerged just says after his wife of seven years, Gillian Smith, gave birth to their fourth child in November.
Reports have claimed Smith has been heartbroken by how quickly Hogg moved on.
His new lover Leonna won 32 races between 2009 and 2013 but retired following an ankle injury.
She was dubbed the ‘world’s sexiest jockey’ when she posed in her underwear for a Zoo magazine shoot in 2013.
Since her competitive racing career ended, Leonna has turned to punditry, working for the likes of Sky Sports and ITV.
