David O'Meara


Top trainer David O’Meara joined the Hambleton Racing trainer ranks in 2012.

David’s results have been quite remarkable since he saddled his first runner in June 2010.

No less than 26 winners were secured during his first six months of holding a full training licence with a first century of winners arriving in 2013, a year in which David went on to amass an impressive 140 winners.

During this time David enjoyed regular Group race success with wins at meetings such as the Epsom Derby meeting and Royal Ascot.

A feature of David’s talent is his ability to improve horses from elsewhere, something our northern horse racing syndicates have benefited from time and again.

David has enjoyed great success with his young horses too, providing some great winners with cheaply sourced horses for our owners, such as wide-margin York winner Grandorio (£15,000).

Since moving to his state-of-the-art facilities at Willow Farm near York, David has continues to go from strength to strength, registering big race wins on a regular basis whilst maintaining a ferocious appetite for winners.

Whether it’s Derby Day at Epsom, Royal Ascot, a top Group race or just a regular race closer to home, David has proved time and again he’s extremely capable of providing quite staggering results for Hambleton Racing’s owners.
