  • Jonjo Looks Forward with The Guardian 04.11.14

    Jono O’Neill’s two potential Gold Cup contenders could take each other on in the Betfair Chase at Haydock this month, both having run with credit in defeat over the weekend. Taquin Du Seuil has been committed to the race by his trainer while Holywell is also a possibility for the race. “I was happy enough with him,” O’Neill said on Monday of Taquin Du Seuil, who ran on dourly to be second behind Menorah in Wetherby’s Charlie Hall Chase. “He could have done with softer ground but at least...

  • FOUR FROM FOUR AT WETHERBY - 50 UP! 16.10.14

    Jonjo was trawling through his memory to recall when he last sent four horses to the races, all four won, ridden by four different jockeys.  That's what happened on Wednesday when AP arrived on the back of a treble and sensing more of the same.  He started the ball rolling with Goodwood Mirage, narrowly holding on to win by a neck from the man who had driven Jonjo to the races, recently recruited amateur Harry Bannister.  That brought up AP's 150 winners for the season -...

  • More Of That News 08.10.14

    Jonjo has announced today that "We have decided More Of That will stay hurdling this season, we are hoping for another good season with him."...

  • Fastest 100 for AP and That's Just the Start 22.08.14

    When Jonjo rode Sweet Milly to win at Haydock and break Fred Winter's record to the fastest 100, the date was 8th February.  That was back in 1978 and the record had been Fred Winter's since 1953.  Jonjo's next target was to pass Ron Barry's season record of 125 with media talk of an unimaginable 150.  He closed the season on 149, a record that stood for 11 years until Peter Scudamore posted 221. AP McCoy's achievement of clocking up 100 winners on 21st August keeps him on track...

  • Jonjo hails AP's Fastest 50 - Special Vintage 12.06.14

    Mission Complete helped AP to the double at Worcester on 10th June that notched up his fastest 50.  This keeps him on scheduled for an unprecedented 300 for the season.  His previous best was in 2001, when the half-century took 13 days longer.  "It was a fantastic feat on AP's behalf to beat his own record which has stood for more than 10 years and it goes to show his appetite for success is definitely not on the wane", said Jonjo.  "After 19 consecutive championships his...

  • Jonjo Names Eight To Follow This Summer 23.05.14

    Jonjo has given Racing Post readers eight horses to follow for the Summer Jumping programme.  Since 2008, he has sent out 215 winners between May and August, a total only surpassed by one other trainer, Tim Vaughan. Clues And Arrows is a horse that has improved over a longer trip and on good ground. "It was a bit of a surprise that he won under a penalty (at Bangor last time) and I hope the race was better than I thought it was.  The form might be okay but it's hard to get a line on the...

  • Jonjo Trains Three Of The Best - Official 20.05.14

    The 2013/14 Anglo-Irish Classifications, announced today, confirmed that Jonjo trains three of the best horses on either side of the Irish sea.  Ladbrokes World Hurdle winner, More Of That is named as the highest rated Staying Hurdler on 169, the same rating as Champion Hurdler Jezki. Holywell, winner at both the Festival and Aintree, is the best Novice Staying Chaser on a mark of 163 and Taquin Du Seuil is the top Novice Middle Distance Chaser on 159.

  • A Record Season For Jonjo 28.04.14

  • " Jackdaws Castle is without doubt one of Europe’s premier training establishments, you really do have to see it to believe it. The facilities are absolutely second to none. Jonjo has a natural gift with horses. He understands their every need and places them to perfection, which makes my job a lot easier. All in all, Jonjo is passionate but realistic; honest and a straight-talking person. He is a top class trainer and a lot of fun. I would call him a true racing legend and a great friend."

    AP McCoy

  • " What can I say about Jonjo O’Neill after all the success I have had as the owner of Albertas Run – a horse I bought for £15k at the sales and which was brought along with patience and great care by the team at Jackdaws. Both Jonjo and AP have a clear empathy with the horse. I love the banter; I love the fun – and his wife is good looking too! All in all an excellent trainer and a fantastic place."

    Trevor Hemmings

  • " Jonjo is a racing legend; an outstanding person who remains as committed to racing as he was when breaking records as champion jockey in the ‘seventies. I’ve had horses with him for nearly twenty five years and, whether you are J P McManus or a small shareholder in a large syndicate, he’s always the same – genuine, consistent and hugely competitive."

    Jim McGrath

  • " Jonjo and Jacqui and the whole team at Jackdaws Castle encapsulate everything that is good and enjoyable about National Hunt racing. Every owner, whoever he or she may be, is looked after individually and is treated with the utmost professionalism and reality, with a great deal of fun mixed in too. To put it bluntly, being involved with Jonjo and the whole team at Jackdaws, really makes owning a racehorse a worthwhile and pleasurable pastime."

    Jeremy Hitchins

  • " The facilities provided at Jackdaws Castle are of the highest quality, and with the expertise of Jonjo, Jacqui and their excellent team, the horses have the best environment possible. We are always kept fully informed with up to date progress reports. A visit to Jackdaws to see the horses on the wonderful gallops makes for a thoroughly enjoyable morning – with hospitality to match! Good luck for this season to all the owners."

    Bensaranat Syndicate

  • " Jonjo and Jacqui represent all that’s great about National Hunt racing – a combination of a thoroughly professional yard and an ability to treat even new owners like old friends."

    Sir Martin Broughton

  • " Jonjo O’Neill is not just a very special man, he is a special trainer too. To visit him and the team at Jackdaws Castle has been one of the pleasures of a lifetime. Mind you, he has lived at least three lives already!"

    Brough Scott

  • " Jonjo, Jacqui and Jackdaws define jumping, jollity and (sometimes) jam!"
