Newcastle trainer Jason Deamer now in his 16th year as a full-time trainer, after a short riding career when his weight got the better of him, with Racing New South Wales granting him his licence in 2002.
Jason is a third-generation horseman and followed the career path set by his grandfather Carl and father John – both too were jockeys.
Jason was a successful apprentice at the tender age of 15 and served the majority of his apprenticeship with his Father. He moved to Rosehill when it became apparent he would be an asset in a metropolitan stable and his Father transferred his credentials to Jack and Allan Denham at Rosehill.
Leaving, the Denham stable when his lanky frame began to fill out and weight started to increase, Jason was 18 so he returned home to Newcastle and began riding work for Newcastle’s premier trainer at the time, Max Lees.
It was there as Lees’ main work rider, Deamer forged an association with prominent owner David Throsby.
Throsby encouraged Jason to apply for his trainers licence and he was fortunate enough to take over the training of Throsby’s 2002 Magic Millions winning filly, Lovely Jubly (Lion Hunter – Jaboulet) in 2003.
Jason saddled-up the QTC Sires’ Produce Stakes winner in the Group 2 Surround Stakes, on March 15th, with the three-year-old finishing mid-field. Two-weeks later, Jason had his best result yet in a Group 1 feature when Lovely Jubly finished runner-up to Bollinger (Dehere – Bint Marscay) in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill.
At seasons end, Lovely Jubly was transferred to Brian Mayfield-Smith with the grey winning another two-races from five starts before being retired.
Deamer’s time with Allan and Jack Denham, Max Lees and David Throsby where he gleaned inspiration, secrets to shape his skills that were showcased through Our Renaissance winning six-races and banking more than $110,000 for connections.
Deamer now maintains a stable of 25 at his Broadmeadow base making good use of those facilities including their swimming pool. At the conclusion of the 2017/18 racing season Deamer had saddled-up 23-individual winners, from 139 runners, with 73 of them earning a cheque – overall horses under his guidance earned more than $500,000 exemplifying returns to their owners’.
The share price is inclusive of the breaking-in fee with Tim McIntosh Racing, the insurance policy is held with Inglis Insurance until May 13th, 2019 all transport and agistment costs have been paid until November 1st 2018. Thompson Thoroughbreds Australia have paid the 2019 Inglis race series fee, early education with Jason Deamer for a month, Racing Australia’s Horse Racing Syndicate costs are paid too. Thompson Thoroughbreds Australia will invoice owners, pro-rata to shareholding, as they are responsible for all accounts on behalf of the syndicate and charge a management fee of $33.00 per month. They have estimated the cost of a two percent share when the filly is in training will be $102.00 (Inc. GST) per month – that’s less than $25 a week!
