Jacko is married to James and is responsible for entertaining owners, cooking breakfast and updating this website on a regular basis! She loves cooking and having people round for lunch or supper. She is very happy that she now has her own hack, TARZAN, and is able to ride out with the string again. TARZAN was bred and is owned by Sara Cumani. Jacko is also responsible for the FRED ARCHER RACING horses and partnerships.
James's hobbies include mowing the lawn and getting perfect stripes. He collects first editions written by Sir Walter Scott, Ernest Hemingway, Graham Greene, Anthony Trollope, W. Somerset Maughan and John Steinbeck as well as collecting them he also enjoys reading them. He loves reading Elmore Leonard and has now started to collect him .He has a pretty extensive collection of (mostly awful) music. His favourite holiday destination is South Africa. On television he enjoys things like The Bridge, Shetland, Vera and good detectives. Very recently he enjoyed War and Peace, which he really has read so knew exactly what was coming next.
Tom is very keen to race ride and has taken out his amateur licence. He spent from the begining of November 2014 until Grand National day 2015 with Donald McCain before coming back to work with James for the flat season. He is a good judge and rider and a jolly good asset to have around. Among the horses he rode regularly in 2015 were THE TIN MAN, LORD GEORGE and SAM MISSILE. He spent three months with Christophe Clement in Florida before embarking on a stint in Australia where he has been lucky enough to work with WINX trainer Chris Waller and is currently part of Matt Cumani's team in Ballarat.
