Trainer Bio

 

David Jacobson got his start in racing as a teenager in 1974, when his dad sent him to California to work for Bobby Frankel. Then a claiming trainer, now in the Hall of Fame, Frankel was Buddy’s top student. A few years later, David returned to New York to work for his father, then struck out on his own.

David is the son of the late Howard “Buddy” Jacobson, a five-time leading trainer in New York. Jacobson returned to training in 2007 after a 25-year absence. He won his first meet title at the Big A in the spring of 2011, and saddled his first Grade 1 winner that year when Mabou took the New York Turf Writers’ Cup at Saratoga. Jacobson added a second Grade 1 victory this year when Strapping Groom won the Forego, also at Saratoga.

Jacobson broke Gary Contessa's NYRA record for most wins in a single season in 2013 and set a single-year record for victories on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit with 160.

He trains primarily for Drawing Away Stable who he also partners with as owner for many.  Drawing Away Stable also earned the Leading Owner title at Aqueduct. See their profile on OwnerView  https://www.ownerview.com/syndicate/o6-1695890/drawing-away-stable
