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, who is son of famous Doncaster trainer Bob Ward and grandson to champion jockey Charlie Ward, has ridden more than 500 professional races in his career in all corners of the globe, including the UK, the Scandinavian Circuit, France and Germany. Even riding winners for Lester Piggott! He has also worked as a work rider in New York, Toronto and Los Angeles.

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.

Jason established his own training business in Middleham in July 2011, where he occupies the town’s most famous yard, Manor House Stables, otherwise known as the Dante Yard.

Dante, the last northern trained Derby winner, was foaled and raised at Manor House Stud but was trained at Manor House Stables, a historic plaque adorns his stable.
