His business covered mines, breweries, collieries in South Africa and gold and diamonds. Jack Joel was extremely successful with his racing and breeding interests and his horses won almost every important contest in the Racing Calendar. He was Champion Owner on 3 occasions.

His horses were trained in a private stable at Wantage by Charles Morton.
