Royal blue silks to be worn in honour of Nathan
ROYAL blue silks will be a feature of every race at Grafton today as Clarence River Jockey Club honours the memory of jockey Nathan Berry.
Berry's funeral service will be held at Rosehill Gardens at 10am today and one jockey in each CRJC race will wear the local racing club's colours.
Berry was the son of Kevin Berry, who was apprenticed to Jack Weatherstone in Grafton in the sixties and seventies before pursuing a career in Sydney under Ray Guy.
"Nathan's passing is very, very sad and given his local connection this is our way to commemorate him and his contribution to racing," CRJC executive officer Michael Beattie said.
