    After a reasonably quite week, Friday we hit our fifty with Jonjo Junior giving Manny Owens a cool ride to win nicely up at Doncaster – a first winner for owners Veterinary Immunogenics Ltd (Tom and Eileen Barr, who are long term friends of Jonjo and Jacqui) Let’s hope it’s the first of many for Manny!

  • November News 23.11.17

    Unfortunately, Cheltenham was a bit of a washout with all the rain, we lost a very promising young horse in Counter Shy, but on a brighter note the team here did really well winning three best turned out awards over the course of the three day meeting. Friday and Saturday we had lots of our owners up for breakfast and to see their horses at exercise, a lot of fun was had, new acquaintances made and bacon sandwiches enjoyed by all. On Friday night, Cheltenham held their annual November...

  • We are a bit behind, catching up with our 15.11.17

    Powerful Symbol won nicely at Southwell on Monday 6th November under a good ride from Richie McLernon, to the delight of The Megson Family (who visited him in his stable before his run) and Sky Pirate finished second in the Novice Hurdle. It was an up and down week with lots of horses running well, finishing in the money – but without quite winning. Over the weekend we had runners at Wincanton where the ground went very soft so we took Mont Royale out of the Badger’s Ale Handicap Chase. Up...

  • The sparks were flying over the weekend! 06.11.17

    The sparks were flying over Jackdaws Castle over the weekend, which we started off on Friday afternoon, with Cobolobo putting up a great performance winning the Handicap Hurdle at Uttoxeter, much to the delight of the Bond Family, under a cool ride from Aidan Coleman.

    At Bangor, on Halloween, Spookydooky didn’t run!, but Walter Oneeightone won nicely under our conditional jockey Killian Moore, another winner for the Bond Family. We had no runners on November 1st but on Thursday 2nd, The Flame ran with promise, finishing third at Stratford and Cloth Cap ran nicely to finish 4th at Sedgefield in the Novice Hurdle. Washed Ashore was unlucky – to make a bad mistake at the second last, when travelling well in the valuable Durham National. Today we have two...

  • " 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!"
