Jerry MEYER, Horse Trainer 1927-2005
Hall of fame trainer had a photographic memory for horses and a soft spot for people down on their luck. He longed to be a jockey and instead ended up with a stable full of champions
By Beverly SMITH, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page S9
They don't make them like Jerry MEYER any more. The Hall of Fame thoroughbred horse trainer was indisputably an original. J.C., as they called him, was one of the old-school horse trainers, consumed by the sport more than by the business, with plenty of room in his heart for a fellow hardboot.
J.C. MEYER had a memory for horses that astonished his peers. He'd see a yearling once at a sale and years later would recognize it, like a familiar face. He knew all the pedigrees and racing records not only of his own horses, but those of every other trainer. "He had a photographic memory," said one of his closest Friends, Lou CAVALARIS, also a member of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. "It would take me five or six days to recognize a [new] horse I had."
Almost everything Mr. MEYER needed to know was inside his head. His mind was like an efficient computer, with some lively quirks, that was occasionally supplemented by a plastic shopping bag he toted everywhere. The bag was full of everything that wasn't contained in his brain yet still mattered: racing forms and programs, a notebook or two, this and that.
Jerry MEYER grew up in southwestern Ontario and, although most of his Friends and relatives don't know it, he was a ski champion at the Chicopee Ski Club near Kitchener, Ontario. "He must have done that before he was 14," Mr. CAVALARIS said. "I don't know how he would have fit it in." When he was in his teens, young Jerry used to hang around a stable on the outskirts of Kitchener and the racing-crazy Chris family "took him in like he was a little orphan guy," although he came from a fine, honest family of his own, said Helen CHRIS, mother of Woodbine racetrack veterinarian John CHRIS. "He was a handyman around the barn," she recalled. "He lived there practically. He was a wonderful exercise boy and he wanted to be a rider, but he got too big."
He won only one race as a jockey, with a horse called Hay Tip at Dufferin Park in Toronto, then became a trainer at age 20 in 1949. His accomplishments were legion. He was leading trainer in Canada in 1964, 1966, and 1969. The 152 winners that he saddled in 1969 placed him fourth among trainers in North America.
Over a span of five decades, Mr. MEYER won more than 2,500 races, more than 100 stakes races, and his horses won more than $19-million in purses. He was one of the first trainers to have a stable as large as 50 or 60 horses, all farmed out at two or three track locations all over North America, much like D. Wayne Lukas or Bobby Frankel today. It was not uncommon for Mr. MEYER to train a stable at Aqueduct in New York, jump in his jalopy, train a few more at The Meadowlands in New Jersey, and then head off to Philadelphia Park to saddle a few for the races. At times, he'd have horses running at different tracks on the same afternoon. "I used to call him the Iron Man," said John CARDELLA, a long-time trainer at Toronto's Woodbine track. Now he calls him an icon.
Mr. MEYER trained Classic Go Go to finish fourth in the 1981 Kentucky Derby, but he failed to win the Queen's Plate, although he had lively candidates like Good Old Mort, the 1977 champion filly Northernette, Pine Point, Gentleman Conn and Brilliant Sandy. He also trained top U.S. colt Verbatim.
He was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 1999. Statistics are one thing. But they don't tell the complete story of the man. J.C. MEYER had an unusual sense of humour. He'd stir the pot at every opportunity. He'd latch onto a word or a phrase, and use it in every sentence for a week or a month. His New York trainer Mike Miceli said whenever anybody would ask him how to use a medication, Mr. MEYER would reply: "Use it as indicated." The phrase became such a Mr. MEYER trademark that one of his Friends named a horse after him: As Indicated.
With outfits spread out all around the eastern states and provinces, Mr. MEYER tried to cut his mounting phone bills by making person-to-person calls to his employees, telling the operator that it was "J.C. MEYER calling for Atadandy (the name of one of his racehorses)" or for the weather bureau.
"Atadandy won by four," the employee would say, then decline the call. The puzzled operator might also hear that the weather was rainy and the race taken off the turf before the line went dead.
Mr. MEYER was like a father to his employees and the relationships were never mundane. He'd conduct lessons with his rookies every day after training. He'd pull every horse out of the stall and point out their foibles and problems to them.
"I'd always have my fingers crossed that he would ask me to take the lead shank," said Michael ROGERS, who Mr. MEYER hired at 14 as a hotwalker, shortly after the boy's father died.
One day he did ask Mr. ROGERS to grab a lead shank, and told him about an ailment the horse had. He then told him to show it to assistant trainer Chuck Penny. As soon as he did, Mr. MEYER leaned out of his office door, and with tongue in cheek, scolded Mr. Penny: "You need Rogers to show you these problems?" Mr. ROGERS now works as a financial officer for Frank Stronach.
Just as Mr. MEYER's stable was rising to power in the late 1950s, he hired on Joe BAKOS, a Hungarian jockey who escaped the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Mr. BAKOS arrived in Canada with no money and no idea how to speak English. Nobody would hire him until Mr. MEYER took him on. Mr. BAKOS became his right-hand man for many years and called him Daddy Jerry.
"He was a tough man to work for," Mr. BAKOS said. "He was straight, but you had to do it right."
Mr. MEYER bought Mr. BAKOS a 1961 Ford Falcon, but he hadn't driven it more than 20 miles when he was in an accident and the car was totalled. He spent the next several years paying Mr. MEYER back. Finally, Mr. BAKOS decided to get another car. Mr. MEYER warned him: "You're going to kill yourself." He bought him a 1964 Falcon anyway and hadn't been driving it for long when "some drunk ran into me." He paid Mr. MEYER off for that car, too, but gave it away and stopped driving for years.
"Jerry was a very kind-hearted person," Mr. BAKOS said.
"I used to get mad at him," said Mr. BAKOS' wife, Vera. "But I couldn't stay mad at him." Jokingly, Mr. MEYER had told Mr. BAKOS he'd pay him $1,000 if he'd ever get around to marrying Vera. "[Joe] was going to swim back to Hungary before he'd marry me," Vera said. When they finally did marry, the money arrived in the form of a cheque.
Ray SABOURIN, now one of the stalwarts of the Woodbine riding colony, showed up at Mr. MEYER's door when he was only 17 years old, looking for a job.
When he said he had ridden horses on a farm up north in Sudbury, he unwittingly hit a nerve. J.C. MEYER loved National Hockey League hockey and quickly rhymed off the names of four hockey players who had come from Sudbury. "You're not going to be a hockey player, are you, son?" he asked.
"He was like a second father to me," Mr. SABOURIN said. "He took me under his wing. He was hard on me, but he was fair. He taught me everything I needed to know from a work standpoint and of how to ride horses."
And he could put things into perspective for the youngster, too. Once, when Mr. SABOURIN and Mr. MEYER were both dining on tuna sandwiches and Cokes at Garden State Park in New Jersey, the trainer spotted the track's wealthy owner and president, Robert Brennan, at a nearby table. He was eating the same dishes they had ordered. "See, Ray?" Mr. MEYER said. "We're doing just as good as Mr. Brennan."
As it happened, fortune ended up shining less brightly on Mr. Brennan, who is now serving nine years in a New Jersey prison for bankruptcy fraud and money laundering.
Mr. MEYER also plucked another employee from Europe when he hired Dessy LUOKANOV, a World Cup show-jumping rider from Bulgaria in 2000. He'd been riding racehorses in Greece before being summoned to Canada. "I never found out how he found me, really," he said.
Although Mr. LUOKANOV had never been to Canada before, Mr. MEYER helped him in finding work, and with his finances. The Tuesday before J.C. MEYER died, Mr. LUOKANOV went to visit him in the hospital. They talked for an hour, with Mr. MEYER close to tears and holding his hand. "Don't forget I brought you to this country," he told him. "I know you're doing okay."
To the end, J.C. MEYER was enthralled by the racing game. Three weeks before he died, he called Mike Miceli and asked him to send him a horse. "I'm equipped to handle a few more," he told him.
Twice in his final 10 days, J.C. MEYER checked himself out of hospital and headed straight for the backstretch to muck out a few stalls.
"He always wanted to die with his boots on," Mr. CAVALARIS said. "He damned near did."
Jerry "J.C." MEYER was born in Kitchener, Ontario, on July 2, 1927. He died of cancer at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto on July 15, 2005. He was 78. He was buried four days later with his binoculars and the notebook he carried everywhere. The last notebook entry was the phone number of Hugh CHATMAN, one of many kids he had taken under his wing decades ago and who is now assistant trainer for the mighty Sam-Son Farm.

Gerard BESSETTE, Writer: 1920-2005
Novelist whose works were compared to that of Albert Camus twice won the Governor-General's Literary Award
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, March 30, 2005, Page S9
Montreal -- As the author of nine novels, a collection of short stories and poetry, Gerard BESSETTE was a two-time winner of the Governor-General's Literary Award.
Mr. BESSETTE, who retired from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, in 1979, also produced numerous critical works that delved into the psychology of Quebec literature in the 20th century. He may well have examined his own writing, namely Le Libraire. One of his most recognized works, it is an existentialist novel about a book-store employee that takes a harsh look at the cultural conditions of small-town Quebec in the 1950s. Considered a Quiet Revolution classic, Le Libraire is frequently compared with Albert Camus's L'Étranger.
Gerard BESSETTE was born in a village on the South Shore of the St. Lawrence near Montreal. In 1944, he graduated from the École normale Jacques-Cartier and was later one of the first scholars to obtain a doctorate in French literature from Université de Montréal in 1950.
He began his career as a poet in 1947. His poem Le Coureur was awarded second prize at the Concours littéraires du Québec, and he went on to represent Canada in the poetry section of the 1948 Olympic Games. But his fascination with verse suddenly evaporated. "I quit writing poetry at the age of 25 or so... Then there was a long silence as far as creative writing was concerned. I started again when I was 36 or 37."
He liked to describe how language and class informed his writing. "I was still torn, not only on levels of language, but also on levels of society. I was from a lower-class milieu, but because of my studies, I was out of it." His first novel, La Bagarre, exposed the symbiotic relationship at work between those elements he divined within. Eventually, his command of voice and his sense of self as an academic were intensified as a consequence of his prose writing.
La Bagarre (1958), Le Libraire (1960) and Les Pédagogues (1961) all explored a similar Quiet Revolution theme of the repressive influences of culture and tradition in Quebec society during the 1950s.
Regarding the popularity of Le Libraire and its lead character, Hervé Jodoin, who resembles the anti-hero Mersault in Camus's L'Étranger, Mr. BESSETTE wrote: "I think that in a way he is the forerunner of the revolt among the young. You know at the beginning he has dropped everything. And had trouble with the Catholic church. Then he gets into the book business and again has trouble with the church. And then he throws everything away and mocks the old regime."
All of his novels are tinged with rebellion, directly and indirectly challenging the status quo and exploring the role of the individual in relation to the expectations of the culture they inhabit. To Steven URQUHART, a doctoral student at Queen's University, Mr. BESSETTE's work uses a great deal of symbolism that is related to phantasmagorical imagery.
"In fact, those who are considered or depicted as monstrous at first are nothing more in reality than human," said Mr. URQUHART, whose doctoral thesis examines grotesque representations and allusions to the notion of monstrosity in Mr. BESSETTE's novels. "The authority figures in his novels end up being the real monsters."
Mr. BESSETTE's later style was inspired by the nouveau roman experimental literary form created by French novelists in the 1950s that included Alain Robbe-Grillet and Nathalie Sarraute. Part of the nouveau roman technique is to eliminate character, plot development and authorial subjectivity to present the reality as pure and uncontaminated as possible. Mr. BESSETTE was a devout advocate of the Freudian psychocritique school of criticism developed by the French scholar Charles Mauron. His works of literary analysis include Littérature en ébullition in 1968 and Trois romanciers québécois in 1973. Regarding his exploration of Freudian literary theory, Mr. BESSETTE once said that psychocriticism gives the reader a feeling of power: "You have an impression and/or illusion that you are discovering things that the writer himself did not know. That's a great satisfaction."
His writing was influenced by a teaching career that began at the University of Saskatchewan in 1946. He also taught at Duquesne University and Royal Military College Kingston, as well as at Queen's. In 1982, he was an invited professor at Yale.
Mr. BESSETTE received the Governor-General's Literary Award for L'Incubation in 1965 and Le Cycle in 1971. He was elected to the Royal Society of Canada in 1966 and, in 1980, was awarded Quebec's Athanase-David Literary Prize.
Gerard BESSETTE was born on February 25, 1920, in Ste-Anne-de-Sabrevois, Québec. He died on February 20, 2005, in Kingston, Ontario He is survived by his wife, Irene BAKOWSKI- BORYS.
