Outstanding Line-Up To Compete For Nathan Berry Medal

By Mark Brassel

Competition will be fierce during Day 1 of The Championships at Royal Randwick this Saturday, when a host of Australia’s finest jockeys – as well as overseas-based riders – strive to claim the prestigious Nathan Berry Medal

The Nathan Berry Medal is awarded to the most successful jockey over the 12 races of The Championships and pays tribute to the former top jockey who passed away in early April 2014.

Nathan was 23-years-of-age and had great success riding 351 winners with his biggest win aboard Unencumbered in the Magic Millions in January 2014.

The Nathan Berry Medal point score is determined on a 3-2-1 basis across the 10 Group races as well as the Finals of the Country and Provincial Championships, with the winner announced at the completion of Day 2 of The Championships (Saturday 14 April).

The Nathan Berry Medal is unique as it features his initials ‘NJB’ in the same font Nathan carried on his racing jodhpurs, and is adorned by a light blue & dark blue ribbon – mirroring the colours he carried on Unencumbered.

Unfortunately, ace rider Hugh Bowman will be hard pressed to claim his fourth successive Nathan Berry Medal as he will miss the first day’s action due to illness.
