John Berry

John grew up in the Scottish Borders and developed a keen interest in horses from a young age through his parents' love of racing and breeding. He rode as an amateur over jumps and, following stints as a track rider in Australia, and with trainers Andy Turnell and Luca Cumani, started training in Newmarket in 1996.  John is also a regular guest on At The Races and a columnist for Thoroughbred Daily News, Winning Post (Australia) and Al Adiyat (Dubai). He was mayor of Newmarket in 2015-16.

Abbie Bunten

Abbie grew up in Newmarket and has worked with us for a number of years now, making sure everything is running like clockwork in the yard and regularly accompanying the horses to the races.

Jana Trnakova

Jana is from the Czech Republic and has worked in Newmarket for many years. She joined our team on the retirement of Clive Brittain, for whom she used to ride the multiple Group 1 winner Rizeena. She is an excellent rider and rides most of the horses in the yard at different times but has a particular love for Hope Is High.

Ivona Slachtova

Ivona is also from the Czech Republic and previously worked for John Gosden's stable, where she used to ride the Group 1 winner Izzi Top and also looked after The Fugue. She joined our stable early in 2017 and is a great addition to the team. Like Jana, Ivona rides very well and is the regular rider of Kryptos.

Lucinda McClure

Lucinda has been a valuable part-time member of our team for years and rides out first lot before heading off to work for Juddmonte. She's seen here with her favourite, and former daily ride, Indira, who won six races and was placed 14 times before retiring in 2017.

Stephen McCormick

Steve is a great friend to this stable and has been involved as an owner in a number of different horses here over the years, including Anis Etoile and Delatite. He is also a regular Saturday visitor prepared to lend a hand with anything and everything.

Emma Berry

Emma's day job is as European editor of TDN and bloodstock editor of Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder but she works from home quite a bit and likes to meddle in the yard when she can. She's the breeder of Delatite and Dereham and co-breeder of Ethics Boy, and can occassionally be found wandering around on her beloved hack Panto.

Blakeney and Gus

Emma's Kerry Blue Terrier and John's Dalmatian, otherwise known as stable security.
