Templeman, Frederick George (1890 - 1973)

Trainer (T),  Jockey (J)

Also Known As:  Fred Templeman

Associated Places:  Meridan House, Lambourn


Fred Templeman, firstly a jockey and then, from 1921, a trainer at Lambourn, was successful in both careers. Grand Parade, his Derby winner, was from Fred Barling's Newmarket stable's second string, rejected by stable jockey Arthur Smith, who was to make the same mistake when given the choice of Derby mounts the following season.

Thus Fred Templeman won the race in which his great-grandfather Simeon Templeman (1805 - 1884) was successful in 1839, 1847 and 1848. His victory was all the sweeter for Fred because he had been runner-up, by a neck, in two previous runnings of the Derby.

Two seasons on found him as a trainer at Lambourn with wealthy patrons, although the first Classic winner he saddled, Diolite, was anything but expensive at 480 guineas. Top horses apart, Fred's favourite was Cottoneaster, a tough and durable mare who won 14 races including the Great Jubilee Handicap, Hardwicke Stakes and Great Yorkshire Handicap.
