Jonjo O’Neill racing Limited has entered into a new sponsorship agreement from 1st September 2019 with the Wasdell Group.
The Wasdell Group has expanded significantly in the ten years since Martin Tedham bought the core company. Now the biggest independent contract packer in Europe, and an increasingly important player in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, Wasdell has its headquarters in Swindon with further facilities in Newcastle, Wellingborough and a recently opened new-build factory in Dundalk, Republic of Ireland.
Group chairman, Martin Tedham, who has long had an interest in horse-racing said “the Wasdell Group is delighted to increase its involvement with Jonjo O’Neill Racing. We have had horses at Jackdaws Castle for a couple of years now and look forward to an enjoyable collaboration with the racing legend that is Jonjo. Jonjo, Jacqui and their team are well-placed for the future as they have been building up the string with an impressive influx of young horses. It is a privilege for Wasdell to work with a yard that is at the forefront of training
establishments, with facilities that cannot be bettered and an estimable work ethic which reflects Wasdell’s commitment to innovation and quality.”
Jonjo O'Neill said "We are absolutely delighted that Martin has come on board to sponsor the yard through the Wasdell Group. We have enjoyed massively successful partnerships with previous sponsors Eddie Stobart and Jewson; we now look forward to another exciting era and to rewarding Martin for the faith he has put in the team at Jackdaws."
