Racing: Berry notches 1,500th winner

THE trainer Jack Berry sent out the 1,500th winner of his career at Redcar yesterday. Fittingly, it was a two-year-old who took him to the landmark, as Red Charger battled on well to take the `Crow's Nest Restaurant' Novice Median Auction Stakes.

Berry, 60, is best known today for his handling of two-year-olds. He set a record for the most juvenile winners in a season (63) in 1989 and broke it in each of the next two years.

Ansellman gave him victory number 1,501 30 minutes later.
