Horse racing school

Horse racing school(Horse racing) isHorse racingProfessional aboutEducationI doEducation Traininginstitution.There are installation examples all over the world.

JRA Horse Racing School(Japanese horse racing) isChibaShirai City OfChiba New TownIn the Nishi-Shiroi area,Japan Central Horse Racing(Hereinafter "JRA")JockeyandClerkIt is an institution and a facility that trains candidates.

Although the name is "school", it is an education and training facility attached to the JRA.School education lawStipulated inVocational school,Various schoolsis not.

The school opens1982 May 3(The entrance ceremonies for the first students of the jockey course and the stable course are jockeys.May 4, StablesMay 4).BajikoenThe predecessor of the branch garden (jockey training center)[1].

As a jockey training institution for local horse racing (flat land)Local Horse Racing Culture CenterThere is[Annotation 1].


It consists of two courses, a three-year jockey course and a half-year stable course.

All studentsDormitoryに 入 るBoarding system(During the period, the training camp will be held at the student dormitory in the school except during the period of returning home such as the year-end and New Year, and during the training period at the stables where you will be assigned to the second year October-September (practical course / first semester) described later. Necessary training is carried out while maintaining a regular living environment.The jockey course consists of about 2 students per grade, and the stable course consists of about 10 students.[2].

In the jockey course, basic physical training as a jockey, riding skills, and stable training in the stables are conducted.Among them, weight management is the most nerve-wracking for jockey course enrolled students, and it is necessary to maintain the weight at a value determined by age by reducing food, etc. not only during school but also during stable training.In addition, from the fall of the second half of the practical course (third year) to the day of the graduation ceremony, simulated races are also held using the runway and Nakayama Racecourse, and in mid-October races and racecourses where active jockeys ride extras. The simulated race is open to the public and anyone can watch it.

Since the stables course is being recruited to train the ability to train and ride on racehorses, it is almost impossible to enroll without working experience and riding experience at a breeding ranch etc. (In the application form)pastureWorking period at, 1FThere is also a column for entering the overtake time).The training period is half a year, and training such as training, stable / racehorse management, and hoofing is conducted.

At Central Horse Racing, the starting point for issuing new jockey / trainer licenses and renewing licenses is set every year.May 3(It is for horse racingMay 1Has become).

Incidentally,Local Horse Racing Culture CenterUnlikeTrainerCourse,Training assistantThere is no course.


Long time agoNakayama RacecourseThe training of active racehorses was being carried out as the Shirai branch of. It was also incorporated into the Chiba New Town area, which started its business in 1966,1978 OfMiura Training CenterWith the opening, the stables in the Shirai branch have also moved to Miho.The remaining facilities are the next1979 It was renewed as "Bajikoen Shirai Branch" from April, and a part of the jockey training business of the Central Horse Racing was transferred. Reorganized as a horse racing school in 4 and completely relocated[3]..The total area of ​​the site is about 26Square meter[4].

Recruitment time

  • JockeyCourse once a year (April admission)
  • ClerkTwice a year (Spring recruitment: March [April] / June [July], Fall recruitment: September [October] / December [January])

Jockey curriculum


As a system, the curriculum is structured so that even those who have no riding experience can acquire riding skills after taking over the jockey training course (long-term) of Equestrian Park and training by a boarding system for 3 years. ing[5]..At the time of admission, the policy is to narrow down the number of students and conduct training by a small number of elite students.[6], The number of students in the first grade is about 1[2]So, one teacher and two instructors are in charge[7]..As for the dormitory, a triple room is given to the first grader, and a private room is given to the second grader and above.[7]..The wake-up time is set at 3:4 (5:40 in the summer) to accommodate the practice of central horse racing, where training begins from 4 to 40 midnight.[8].

In addition, Sundays are closed days and you are allowed to go out.It is strictly forbidden to buy or bring in sweets from outside the school (if it is a shop inside the school, it is possible with conditions as described below), but in the cafeteria inside the schoolcalciumTo replenishBoiledThere is it can be eaten freely[9].

As for instructors, there are cases where experienced jockeys are hired.Tokichi Kazuki(Retired, current horse-race critic),Katsumi Sakamoto,Hayato Minoda,Yoshikazu Yokoyama,Junichi KobayashiAre serving.Kobayashi was the first to be hired by a graduate of the horse racing school jockey course.

From April to the second year of enrollmentMay 9Until then, the basic skills will be trained at the horse racing school as a basic course.There are practical training and departments in the lesson subjects, and the ratio of lesson time is about 2: 1.[10]..As for practical training, the first year is mostly about basic equestrian, and from the second year like a professional jockey.Monkey rideTraining to take (called a race posture) begins[11]..In addition to horse racing, horse racing, and equestrian science, there are also general subjects such as English, Japanese, and mathematics in order to acquire the same general knowledge as high school graduates.[12].

From the day after the end of the basic course (advancement day), it will be a practical course.As the first half of the practical course, we will actually be a member of the stable staff and practice at the training centers in Miho and Ritto for one year from October. From October of the third grade, we will study at the horse racing school as the second half of the practical course.At this time, as a summary of the training, a simulated race using the course of the racetrack of the Central Horse Racing will be held.[13]..The jockey license test will be taken at this time, and in February there will be an oral test, a proficiency test and an announcement of the results.For the students with the best grades at the time of graduationIrish Ambassador Special Award(See below) will be presented.

Immediately before graduation, a class was held inviting an active jockey as a special lecturer. For example, Taketoyo in the 20th grade and Shinji Fujita in the 25th grade gave lectures to jockey candidates.

Depending on various circumstances such as grades and injuries while attending schoolRepetitionIn some cases.The specific criteria for repeating a year are not open to the public, but as an example, I entered the school as a third-year student.Junichi SerizawaWas unable to take the exam due to a fallen horse fracture just before the graduation exam and repeated a year (graduated the following year) and entered the school in the 24th semester.Yu HiranoIn the case of, it is clarified that additional training at the ranch etc. was imposed as "there was a mental weakness".[14](Graduated as the 26th gen member).Yuji HishidaWas enrolled in the 27th grade, but he was told to repeat the first grade because he was weak in overcoming fear and pressure in the "mental item" part and repeated a year.[15], Graduated as a 28th gen member.

During the Equestrian Park era, the long-term jockey course was a two-year system of stable training from May of the second year to the beginning of the following year, and graduation in March.After graduating, he was neither a student nor a jockey as a "jockey candidate (riding)" and had to take the jockey license examination after graduation.

In the case of horse racing schools, there is currently no short-term jockey training course, so you can enter the JRA stables as a rider, acquire riding skills under a trainer, take the jockey license test directly, pass it, and obtain a jockey license. NS"One-shot test"It is practically impossible to obtain a jockey license by a method called such as[Annotation 3]..Therefore, the horse racing school jockey curriculum is virtually the only route to directly enter the JRA organization and become a jockey.

How to select students

Requirements such as educational background, age, and physical characteristics are set as qualifications for application.Of these, regarding educational background and age, it is said that you are expected to graduate from junior high school or are older than junior high school, and the age at the time of admission is 20 years or younger, but in reality it is necessary to receive training by the time you graduate from high school. It is difficult for high school graduates to pass because of the loss of physical flexibility[18]..Regarding physical aspects, height and weight are required to be below a certain level, and the physique of not only the individual but also the family is taken into consideration in the admission examination.[19].

Applicants who meet the recruitment qualifications will be subject to the primary and secondary exams.The primary exam examines academic ability and basic physical ability, and the secondary exam examines the physical ability required of the jockey, such as a sense of balance.[20]..In addition, physical measurements and health examinations will be conducted at the same time as the test.[21]..For successful applicants, trial enrollment will be held in late March, just before enrollment.[22].

It is strictly adhered to the prescribed weight maintenance before enrollment, and if the weight exceeds the standard at the time of trial enrollment, the enrollment offer may be canceled at that time.[21].

The number of applicants was about 60-70 at the beginning of the school, but it has continued to increase after exceeding 1985 in 100.[23]In the latter half of the 1990s, when the second horse racing boom began, the number of people was about 700.After that, it continued to decrease, and as of the latter half of the 2000s, there were about 150 people.[24].

Withdrawal / withdrawal

In the horse racing school jockey courseWeightEvery year due to various management and health issuesDrop outIs out[24]Although it is a minority selection type curriculum with a small number of students (jockey candidates) from the beginning, it is customary to reduce the number of students by a few compared to the time of admission and graduation, which is less than half. There is also a period.

This is first of allBurden weightAs long as it is an educational institution that aims to get a job as a horseman who has strict restrictions on weight in the form of, there is an absolute upper limit on physique, especially on weight until after graduation. It is a big factor that it is related to occupational life, such as keeping up with it from beginning to end.While in schoolSecondary sex characteristicsMore than expected due to the influence ofheightHowever, there were cases in which he was forced to drop out of school because he gained weight and was forced to lose weight, and after he was forced to lose weight, he exceeded the limits of self-management and dietary restrictions, causing physical and mental disorders, and could not tolerate strict dietary restrictions. be.In addition, I got out of the dormitory in the eyes of the guard, and in the neighborhoodconvenience storeSeveral active jockeys who graduated from horse racing school talked about the severity as a memory story, such as going shopping for sweets etc.[Annotation 4].

In addition, there are cases in which problems such as weight loss occur due to physical growth between the time of admission to the jockey course and the enrollment, and the jockey course is forced to decline.Nowadays, there are cases where admission is abandoned for those who are judged to be too tall after predicting the degree of future growth by measuring bone density.

On the other hand, there is a glimpse of the circumstances on the JRA side regarding the dropout of students in recent years. Since enrolling in 2005, the JRA has reviewed the horse racing school and made major changes to its management policy, including the introduction of the beneficiary burden principle.Along with thisTuition feeDue to the fact that the financial burden on parents has increased significantly, the number of examinees for the horse racing school jockey course has decreased significantly, and overall, the examinees are also qualitative. Although the number of high-level students who stood out for a while was not available, the selection criteria were maintained or increased, and the number of successful applicants and enrollees decreased.On the other hand, due to the recessionHorse ownerDue to the decrease and especially in the Kanto region, there is a shortage of racehorses due to the remarkable slump in Miho Training Center itself, and many trainers and stables who are forced to manage hard have lost the capacity to play a part in training young jockeys and jockey candidates. MoreoverLocal horse racingDue to factors such as the rise of foreign jockeys who ride with their own jockeys and short-term licenses, and the rise in the voice of owners, there are a number of jockeys who say, "Even if you have a jockey license, you cannot get a riding opportunity." There is an internal fact, and in recent yearsApprentice jockeyAt the same time as the debut, it became an era in which technology and results were strongly required, and the demand for "cultivation of immediate fighting power" was imposed on the horse racing school from the field side.As a result of the combination of these factors, the jockey course will be significantly strengthened in the training curriculum, and there will be a considerable number of cases where students who cannot keep up with it will drop out.


The names of prospective and graduates will be announced by the JRA, but there are few reports of dropouts or declines of prospective students in the jockey course. In 1992, three women entered the school as the 11th semester, but all of them dropped out by 3.[25]However, one of them claimed to have been forced to drop out from the horse racing school, and a civil lawsuit was filed.[26][Annotation 5].. In 1999Shun IshizakiDropout due to illness[27], 2009 had a track record in boxing before enrollmentRyuji HaraDropout (and introduction to a professional boxing gym) was reported[28]..Also in 2009, there was a woman who entered the school aiming for the first female jockey in 12 years,Brain tumorDropped out the following year (died at the age of 2013 in 20)[29]..Other than those, even if you look over the relationship between the jockey and the former jockey,Hirofumi TakanoThe son ofKohei KitamuraBrother of,Takashi HaritaSon ofKaoru Harita,Yoshiomi ShibataSome of my sons have dropped out or declined admission.When Shun Ishizaki dropped out of school, his father, who was the top jockey of local horse racing,隆之Went to pick up Shun who had dropped out, but at that time he said, "The jockey's path is not only in the center."[30]This was also one of the triggers, and about the truth of Shun's withdrawal, various speculations and rumors were made among horse racing media, horse racing writers, etc., including the internal circumstances and constitution of the horse racing school.[Annotation 6][Annotation 7].

In addition to the dropout measures at the horse racing school, for those with poor behaviorSuspensionThere is also a measure of.As a person who has been revealed to have been suspended in the pastShinji FujitaAnd so on[31].
