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.

MORTIFEE, Margaret Anderson (1921-2005)
Angel 'Incognito'; Undercover
Bodhisattva; Une Grande Dame...
"Marga', born in Bloomfontein, South Africa on January 19th, 1921, made her transition to the other side surrounded by her five children and loved ones at 6: 10 p.m. on Monday, December 12th, 2005 after a thankfully brief illness with cancer.
Born of Scottish parents, Marga was raised in the Orange Free State in South Africa. A volunteer Corporal in the South African Army during World War 2, this "Canteen Cutie" served primarily in Egypt, driving 5-ton lorries and contributing to a variety of other duties. At war's end, she met and married Bill ('Monty') MORTIFEE (deceased October 1st, 1998) in Pretoria, South Africa. As the wife of a Member of Parliament, she lived half time on a sugar cane farm in Zululand and half time in Cape Town. There she had four daughters (Margaret, Ann, Mary and Jane). In 1956 the family immigrated to Vancouver where she then had a son (Peter). She volunteered for a number of organizations. She had a keen interest in modern history and current events. She loved to read, particularly biographies. She was a supporter of the arts and innumerable humanitarian charities. In her later years she was thrilled to finally take up the art of painting.
Marga was a woman of extraordinary kindness, compassion and generosity. Her greatest devotion was to diminishing the suffering of others. Nothing gave her greater satisfaction and joy than knowing that those she cared about were well. Her primary passion was her family and her dearest loved ones. She had true empathy with an unusual capacity to listen and an authentic interest in people's lives. Her outrageous and irreverent sense of humour endeared her to all who met her.
Mum/Granny is survived by her five children Margaret MORTIFEE (Julien-Jacques SABY,) Ann MORTIFEE (Paul HORN,) Mary SIMONIN (Mark DRABOT), Jane MORTIFEE, Peter MORTIFEE (Nancy FISCHER), and her eight grandchildren Georges BOIS, Robert BOIS, Dora-Jane SIMONIN, Luke SIMONIN, Devon MORTIFEE, Jessica BIRCH, Lauren MORTIFEE and Claire MORTIFEE.
It is with both grief at the loss of such a beacon of light and yet profound gratitude for all the blessings she bestowed on so many of us, that the family invite those of you whose lives were touched by her to come and join in a celebration of her life on Sunday, December 18th, 2005 from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club (Jericho Club House). Marga requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Salvation Army.
