James Ewart


James Ewart Racing Ltd was founded in 2004 as a Flat and National Hunt racing yard; initially buying and selling French horses to U.K. owners whilst establishing training facilities.

James knowledge stemmed from employment as Amateur Jockey and Pupil Assistant Trainer to Ferdy Murphy. Alongside which, he spent a summer in France with French Bloodstock agent Guy Petit; here James gained valuable experience and contacts - purchasing French bloodstock including: Dark Ben and My Way De Solzen.

After four years James became Assistant Trainer and Amateur Jockey to the Champion French Jumps Trainer, Guillaume Macaire. Personally, winning three times at Auteuil, France’s most prestigious racecourse, to include the 100th Prix De France Champion Amateur Chase.

James continues to drive his success and continually improves the quality of horses and the methods of training used. His personal ambition is to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham, but any one at the festival would do of course!
