Bell, Oswald Marmeduke Dalby (Captain) (1871 - 1949)

Breeder (B),  Trainer (T)

Also Known As:  Ossie Bell

Associated Places:  Delemere House, Lambourn

Description:

Ossie Bell was born in Australia, the son of Sir Joshua Bell. He first started training in India. Many of his patrons there had horses with him later on, when he trained in England, first in Epsom and later at Delamere House in Lambourn. During World War I he had been a photographic officer in the airforce.

Ossie Bell worked hard and lived quietly. He could train sprinters and stayers alike, for in addition to his Classic winners he campaigned such as Concerto (Wokingham Handicap, twice), Ipsden (Nunthorpe Stakes) and Flint Jack (a public favourite and twice winner of the Ebor Handicap). He also bred Rosewell, winner of the Irish Derby.
