This is a Hand Signed White Card 5.5" x 3.5" by the Irish National Hunt Racehorse Trainer and former jockey.
Jonjo O'Neill (born April 13 1952 in County Cork), is an Irish racehorse trainer and former National Hunt jockey. O'Neill's boyhood ambition was to become a jockey and after leaving school he began an apprenticeship with Michael Connolly. In 1970 he rode his first winner when Lana dead heated at the Curragh. Three years later, Jonjo moved to England and from then on his career burgeoned. In 1977/78, he broke the record for most winners in a season. His tally of one hundred and forty nine beat the previous record (held by former champion and one of Jonjo's closest friends, Ron Barry) by twenty four. In the 1979/1980 season, he claimed the Jockeys' Championship for a second time .
