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.

John O'NEILL, Educator 1947-2005
Ottawa baseball devotee and coach created a popular website for local high school sports results that is about to go national
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, May 14, 2005, Page S9
John O'NEILL was such an accomplished student that he skipped two grades in one fell swoop, thanks to one of his best teachers his mother.
Margaret O'NEILL taught John all through the lower grades at the Barr Line School near their home of Douglas, Ontario, a hamlet located 100 km. northwest of Ottawa. With that scholastic upbringing, he went on to become not just a teacher but a visionary, the convener and coach of many successful teams at Ottawa's Brookfield High School for 30 years before he retired in 2000.
Early on, Mr. O'NEILL easily combined sports with school, and established himself in Douglas as an accomplished baseball player, a star hitter and strong-armed pitcher-shortstop.
On a hot day in August in 1965, as a member of an elite adult team in the South Renfrew Senior Baseball League, he faced adversity in the seventh and deciding game of the championship series against Barry's Bay. In the middle of the game, he smoked a line-drive solo home run off Mike MURRAY into a pile of abandoned ice-rink boards behind an outhouse beyond the centre-field fence. A happy John O'NEILL waltzed around the bases and his teammates all ganged up at home plate to welcome him. But alas, those teammates apparently left no room for him to touch the plate, which was missing a piece at one corner. In the ensuing hoopla, Barry's Bay catcher Phil COULAS noticed that Mr. O'NEILL hadn't touched the plate he informed umpire Alfie BRACE. Barry's Bay appealed the play and the umpire called Mr. O'NEILL out. The Douglas team protested. Even Reverend Tom HUNT, the local Catholic priest, marched out to admonish the umpire, saying, "That man touched home plate." In any event, Douglas won 6-5 in 12 innings.
After attending Grades 9 through 12 at St. Michael's School in Douglas, Mr. O'NEILL took Grade 13 at Renfrew Collegiate Institute and went on to obtain a Bachelor of Arts following three years at St. Patrick's College in Ottawa. A year later, he obtained his honours degree in Canadian and American history at Ottawa's Carleton University and got his teaching certificate from St. Pat's in 1968. It was at St. Pat's that Mr. O'NEILL met Joan CARDINAL, who became his wife, and a city and regional councillor in Ottawa for many years.
John O'NEILL embarked on his teaching career with a two-year stint at East Northumberland Secondary School in Brighton, Ontario, before moving to Brookfield. Johnny O, as he was known, was a history and economics teacher who also brought a passion for track and field, football and baseball to Brookfield.
From 1980 to 1993, he was the Ottawa Board of Education's track-and-field convener. He coached Brookfield to eight consecutive Ottawa championships. In football, he found the same success, helping coach the Blues to six Ottawa board titles.
Still, baseball remained Mr. O'NEILL's favourite sport. An autographed photo of Mickey Mantle was one of his favourite possessions. So when the boards of education in the Ottawa area decided to introduce baseball in 1993, he jumped right in and took over Brookfield's entry. Not surprisingly, Mr. O'NEILL's team won the 1994 Ottawa crown and the 1995 and 1996 National Capital titles.
When he retired, Mr. O'NEILL didn't throw in the towel. The visionary side of him emerged, and he founded http: //www.fatdog.ca, an Internet high school sports-reporting system that has become Ottawa's venue to seek game results. He spent countless hours on the site and it was his way of showing students and coaches that they deserved recognition for the underappreciated roles they played on their teams.
"We wanted a catchy name and John and I tossed all kinds of names around," Mrs. O'NEILL said. "We looked at our dog Bailey, a pot-bellied beagle, so we decided to go with fatdog. John's idea was to do the website for Brookfield only -- but our son Sean suggested he do it for all of the school teams in the Ottawa area." Sean O'NEILL and his employer, Ottawa-based MarsWorks, are planning a major revision to the site next fall and are planning to bring in other high school associations from across Canada.
In 2002, the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association presented John O'NEILL with the Fellowship Award for 30 years of coaching and for creating http: //www.fatdog.ca.
John O'NEILL was born in Douglas, Ontario, on July 19, 1947. He died January 1, 2005, in Ottawa Hospital of pneumonia as a result of complications from cancer and liver disease. He is survived by his wife, Joan, and children Sean and Shannon. He was predeceased by his mother Margaret.

Patrick CARDY, Composer and Teacher: 1953-2005
Open-minded, all-embracing Ottawa musician was known for bridging gaps in an area of the arts that is often strongly divided. For him, it was all about communicating with his audience
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, May 4, 2005, Page S7
Ottawa -- During a career that saw him receive more than 40 commissions from performers and institutions, including acclaimed Canadian concert pianist Angela Hewitt and Ottawa's National Arts Centre Orchestra, Patrick CARDY rarely separated himself from those who hired him to compose music.
"Patrick dispelled the stereotype of composers as introverted and dour and who do their own thing. He was always enthusiastic to work with us, and about the process of working with us," says Peter DUSCHENES, artistic director for the Platypus Theatre in Ottawa.
In 2001, Mr. CARDY was commissioned by the National Arts Centre Orchestra to co-write music for Rhythm in Your Rubbish, a Platypus Theatre production that told the story of two tramps who discover the beauty of music.
As was usually the case, Mr. CARDY took on the project with great enthusiasm, attending workshops and rehearsals, where he collaborated with actors and the director to make the music and story work well together. "He was a fantastic collaborator who was so willing to jump into the process of creating," says Mr. DUSCHENES.
Others to commission Mr. CARDY include the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Vancouver Orchestra, the Vancouver Chamber Music Festival and Thirteen Strings. In addition to Ms. HEWITT, he wrote for soprano Julie NESRALLAH, flautists Robert CRAM and Jean-Guy BRAULT, and for the violin/viola duo of Jerry and Janos CSABA, who premiered his Mimesis on the National Arts Centre's Music for a Sunday Afternoon series in 1988.
Often, his support and interest in those who commissioned him did not end once his music was put to paper: When Rhythm in Your Rubbish toured Ontario, Mr. CARDY attended performances in many cities, including Kitchener, and Toronto, where the Toronto Symphony performed his score. He would often have a beer with musicians after a performance to ask how they enjoyed playing his music and to determine if revisions were necessary. Anyone who is familiar with his compositions says his music is characterized by colourful, evocative sonorities, a strong sense of dramatic gesture, an elegant lyricism and an accessible directness of expression -- traits that have captivated both listeners and performers.
Mr. CARDY's work ranged from pieces for children's theatre to liturgical music. He was just as likely to be inspired by the music of a Renaissance composer, as he was to experiment with synthetic musical scales. A Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Records disc of his work Virelai, for clarinet and string orchestra, was nominated for a Juno award in the Best Classical Composition category in 1992, and another Canadian Broadcasting Corporation disc including his Éclat for Organ, was named Best Classical Recording at the 1999 East Coast Music Awards.
Mr. CARDY, who was also a flutist and teacher, was in demand as a guest lecturer and music adjudicator Canadawide, and often visited area high schools to encourage students to consider music as a career. In 1977, he became a professor in music composition and theory at Carleton University's School for Studies in Art and Culture, where he was known as an attentive and creative teacher.
Mr. CARDY was president of the Canadian League of Composers from 1989 to 1993, and was on the Canadian League of Composers's executive council for many years, during which he was "well spoken on issues of concern to Canadian composers and very generous with his time and advice," says Canadian League of Composers president John BURGE of Toronto.
While president, he used his close proximity to the Canada Council's Ottawa office to work on a number of items, including trying to increase the amount of Canadian music performed by Canadian orchestras, says Mr. BURGE. He also oversaw the highly successful 40th-anniversary celebrations of the Canadian League of Composers in Winnipeg in 1991.
"He cared deeply about our country and wanted us all to appreciate the wealth of our musical heritage and to provide opportunities for current and future composers," says Mr. BURGE.
On March 11, the Ottawa Chamber Music Society performed a tribute concert to Mr. CARDY's work at a local church. The concert was recorded by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to be broadcast later across Canada. "It was a beautiful event," says the society's artistic director, Julian ARMOUR, noting that the society on 29 different occasions used the composer's work in its performances. The March concert included pieces written for his two children. It began with CARDY's Hope, a short, sweet piece for strings dedicated to son Michael, and also included Quips and Cranks dedicated to son Jonathan.
"He wrote music to be played and listened to," says Mr. ARMOUR. "He loved the reaction of audiences and that his music brought out strong emotions."
With his open-minded approach, Mr. CARDY, who was a devout Catholic, was known to bridge gaps in an industry that is often strongly divided. "These days there is an extremely wide spectrum of music and few composers have respect for the whole spectrum, but Patrick brought people together and he always fostered respect for what others were doing.
"He was a great, positive and healthy force in the Canadian music industry."
When he was not composing, Mr. CARDY loved to play sports and keep fit, says close friend Al MacKEY, who had known Mr. CARDY and his wife, Janet, for 20 years.
"He was a passionate debater who liked to take opposing views and provoke his Friends on just about any subject," says Mr. MacKEY, who remembers his friend as an enthusiastic curler and softball player, and a huge hockey fan who never missed his son Jonathan's games and practices.
In 1996, Mr. CARDY served as music adviser to the National Arts Centre Orchestra for its new music festival, A Tonal Departure, and more recently was a consultant on the National Arts Centre New Music Program. Over the years, he wrote a handful of pieces of chamber music for both the orchestra and its musicians and was active in suggesting new music the orchestra should add to its concert series.
"One of his roles was to serve as the voice of conscience for the National Arts Centre Orchestra in our new music program," says Christopher DEACON, the orchestra's managing director. "He gave us guidance; there was ongoing dialogue and if he felt we were not doing enough, he would nip at our heels."
Andrew CARDY was a patient collaborator, says Mr. DEACON. "He would not just say 'here is a proposal,' he would give me a very elaborate range of options. They were always very thoughtful options and he was very responsive to what we had to say."
Like the 18th-century composer Joseph Haydn, Mr. CARDY signed all his compositions with the Latin Deo gratias -- thanks be to God.
Patrick CARDY was born August 22, 1953, in Toronto. He died of a heart attack March 24 in Ottawa, after being treated for a broken arm suffered while curling. He was 51. He is survived by his wife, Janet, and two sons, Michael, 7, and Jonathan, 11. On the night he died, the National Arts Centre Orchestra dedicated its performance to him.

I Remember -- Patrick CARDY
By Anne FROST, Tuesday, May 17, 2005, Page S9
Anne FROST of Saskatoon writes about Patrick CARDY, whose obituary appeared on May 4.
I grew up in a small Northern Ontario town, with ritual piano lessons being my only exposure to classical music. These ended at the age of 14 at the request of my mother and my teacher! In my 30s, I offered to store a cousin's piano. Within a week of its arrival, I was back at lessons with a teacher who started me at the very beginning, following the Conservatory outline with exams at the Grade 6 and Grade 8 levels. In 1976, we moved to Ottawa and I continued my lessons. By now, I was at the Grade 9 level and a history credit was required. My teacher sent me to Carleton University to take Music 101. The professor was Patrick CARDY. It is no exaggeration to say that I owe my passion for classical music to him. With his great enthusiasm, he was the ideal person to introduce me to this new element in my life. After completing the Grade 9 exam, I gave my whole attention to pursuing a bachelor of music degree, which I completed in 1984. Since then, my life has been filled with the joy of classical music. I regret that I never thanked him properly.

I Remember -- Patrick CARDY
By Mary BULLOCK, Wednesday, June 8, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Mary BULLOCK of Ottawa writes about Patrick CARDY, whose obituary appeared on May 4.
In 1997, my husband, David and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and I wanted to give him an anniversary present that was unusual and would commemorate our mutual love of music. I also wanted it to be a surprise. I approached Julian ARMOUR, the artistic director of the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival who arranged for me to commission a piece of music from Patrick CARDY. I donated a sum to the festival and, in turn, Patrick CARDY received his remuneration for the commission. The work was based on Toad of Toad Hall, the children's classic by Kenneth Grahame, and was about Toad and his love of cars -- I always considered my husband a latter-day Toad. Patrick CARDY was a joy in his complete commitment to this work and to keeping it a secret. It was performed in one of the concerts devoted to Canadian music. It was introduced by Patrick CARDY and, to my husband's complete astonishment, by myself. On March 11, it was performed again at the special concert of the composer's music. It is indicative of the warmth of his personality that he and his family became our Friends. I am overjoyed that there is to be a concert in his memory at this year's festival, which runs from July 23 to August 6.
