18/06/02 O'Heare Announces Jockey Manager
Talented Victorian based rider David O'Heare has announced he has a new manager.

Well known local syndicator and racing enthusiast Corinna Slade has taken up the role of securing O'Heare's rides.

O'Heare, who began his apprenticeship in April 1995, a month before turning 15, was one of Western Australia's most promising young riders to be unearthed during the 1990s.

Just a few months after his first ride the talented hoop rode his first city winner, still aged just 15 years.

During his early years as a jockey O'Heare was recognised with a number of honours and awards. During the 1995/96 season he was announced as the Most Promising Junior. A year later at the same awards night he took the Most Promising Senior rider honour. In the 1997/98 season David won the metropolitan apprentice title with nearly 50 winners. In that season only Paul Harvey rode more winners in Perth.

"During his apprenticeship David outrode his claim in the metropolitan area, a feat only accomplished by riders of exceptional ability," Slade said.

O'Heare is also proven in the lucrative Asian circuit with stints in both Singapore and Malaysia. In one season the former West Aussie finished second on the Malaysian Jockey Premiership after riding for the likes of Charles Leck, Malcolm Thwaites, Paddy Busuttin and John Meagher.

O'Heare, who's ridden over 360 winners in his career to date, is now based in Victoria. He can be booked for rides through Corinna Slade on 0439 719 911.
