Jamie Osborne

Jamie describes himself as an ‘overrated jockey, underrated trainer’ on his Twitter profile. As a National Hunt jockey, he rode for 16 seasons. A dozen Cheltenham festival victories through the 1990s and almost a thousand worldwide winners made him one of the leading riders of that era.

In 2001 his second season as a trainer, Jamie trained his first Royal Ascot winner when Irony won the Windsor Castle Stakes. In 2003, Milk It Mick landed the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes to firmly put him on the map. Since then, a steady stream of high-class winners have followed. The Royal Ascot total has risen to 6 along with much international success, including the UAE Derby with Toast Of New York, who was just inched out of the Breeders Cup Classic 2014.

"I aim to run a medium-sized boutique stable of quality horses owned by great people"
A racehorse trainer is only as good as the people they work with. Building the right team is the key to success.

Deb Kelly

Company Secretary

Deb has been an integral part of the team for over 16 years, having previously run the office of David Nicholson at Condicote and Jackdaws Castle. The font of all knowledge and an important point of contact within the organisation.

Jimmy McCarthy

Chief Operating Officer

A highly successful jump jockey for 20 years, Jimmy has been a part of the team in some shape or form since day one. He has been Jamie’s right-hand man for the past 5 seasons. It has been said that if you could merge Jimmy and Jamie’s strengths together you would create the ultimate trainer. As they can’t do this, they decided to work together.
