About R Jay Ward Racing Ltd

Jason Ward

R Jay Ward Racing was established in 2010 by Jason Ward after he retired from a long and successful career as a jockey, work rider and assistant trainer.

Jason was born in Doncaster in 1969. From an early age it was obvious that he was going to follow in the family footsteps and be involved in the racing industry. Jason has a real pedigree to train as his father R C ‘Bob’ Ward trained over a thousand winners under both codes, his grandfather was champion jockey on the flat and his great grandfather was the first jockey to win the Grand National two years in succession. Jason himself rode professionally before becoming assistant trainer to James Fanshawe in Newmarket. Spending time in the USA, France, Germany etc. also widened his experience.

He started his training career as an assistant trainer to James Fanshawe in Newmarket, where he stayed for seven years working with numerous top class horses. He has also worked for some of the biggest stars in the racing world, including Criquette Head (France), Patrick Biancone (Los Angeles), Dave Bell (Toronto and New York), Mick O'Toole (Ireland), Peter Lautner (Germany) and also The Irish Cavalry. The year before he started his own operation he was head lad to Richard Whitaker, when the yard enjoyed its most successful year in more than 10 years.
