Welcome to Jamesfield Place - the home of James Tate Racing

Since sending out his first runner just over five years ago, James has already saddled nearly 250 winners to win approximately £2 million of prize money. His statistics also tell a story as an incredible 60% of his runners finish in the first four.

2016 was headlined by two daughters of Foxwedge – Seafront and Urban Fox.  The two fillies were next-door lots in Book 3 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale and were picked up relatively inexpensively by James and Saeed Manana for just 18,000 and 10,000 guineas respectively.

Seafront was first off the mark – breaking her maiden at the second time of asking before two Irish raids saw her pick up valuable Listed and Group 3 black-type, latterly when going down by just a neck to Roly Poly in the Group 3 Grangecon Stud Stakes at The Curragh.

Then Urban Fox took up the baton, winning her first two Novice races impressively before notching up black-type places at Listed, Group 3 and Group 2 level.  Not finished yet, she then won a valuable Newmarket conditions race and her third £10,000 bonus before getting the yard’s first piece of Group 1 black-type in the Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket when only finding the Aiden O’Brien trained duo Rhododendron and Hydrangea too good in Britain’s best race for 2yo fillies.

"Being a fully qualified veterinary surgeon gives me a significant advantage as a racehorse trainer. I honestly believe that we have won with horses that would never have even made the racecourse for other trainers."
