Fran Berry and Ralph Beckett end association 'by mutual consent'
on 17 June 2017
One of the leading riders in Ireland for many years, Berry said he intends to remain in England as a freelance

FRAN Berry will no longer be stable jockey to classic-winning trainer Ralph Beckett.

Berry had been one of the leading riders in Ireland for many years, having passed the 1,000-winner mark in 2015, and joined the Beckett team in February 2016.

However, the 36-year-old jockey's time in England has been blighted by injury and his association with the trainer has now ended "by mutual consent".

A statement posted on the Kimpton handler's website (www.rbeckett.com) read: "Both Fran and I feel that this is the right decision to make going forward. I am grateful to Fran for his considerable efforts over the last year or so, and wish him the best of luck in the future."

Beckett had previously been without a stable jockey since Jim Crowley, who is now retained by Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, went freelance in 2014.

Berry said he intends to remain in England as a freelance rider.
