Trainer James Tate is a new trainer to HOTSR in 2023 but what a great partnership it has been already!
James comes from a family steeped in racing and after 6 seasons assisting Mark Johnston, James become a trainer of his own right in October 2011. His first runner Dark Falcon was also his first winner and since then James has gone onto train over 500 winners (many at Group level!) and won over £5,000,000 in prize money!
His notable successes include:
- 2023 Listed winner Iconic Moment
- Listed winner Royal Aclaim
- Listed Doncaster Mile Stakes winner & Group 3 Superior Mile Stakes winner Top Ranked
- Group 3 Palace House Stakes winner Far Above
- £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes & Group 3 Keeneland Stakes winner Under The Stars
- Group 3 Prix du Palais-Royal winner Hey Gaman
- Group 2 Duke Of York Clipper Logistics winner Invincible Army
James trains at the beautiful Jamesfield Place off Hamilton Road in Newmarket. It is a peaceful environment with large stables, an indoor school, starting stalls, an equine swimming pool and use of the Jockey Club Newmarket gallops. James is also a qualified vet so you are certain to learn PLENTY when having a horse in training with him as his knowledge is second to none!
HOTSR do not like moving horses but after things weren’t working in the early part of 2023 with King Of Ithaca his Owners decided a change in scenery/routine might be what needs. Indeed it seems to have reignited his enthusiasm as since arriving with James King Of Ithaca has won again and been placed 4 times during his 6 starts with James! We are so excited to have another horse in training with him for 2024 – why don’t you become a part of the adventure!?
