Jack Berry House officially opened its doors on Monday 20th April with a number of current and retired jockeys calling in to view all the facilities on offer.

Jack Berry House contains a state-of-the-art gym, hydrotherapy pool and associated respite units together with Moller House, the home of the resident site manager, Jo Russell. Established to assist the overall fitness and wellbeing of jockeys and with specialist equipment to aid recovery from injury, Jack Berry House will be the Injured Jockeys Fund's northern base rehabilitation and fitness centre.  

Vice-Patron Jack Berry, has worked tirelessly to raise over £3m towards the cost of the project. Principal contractor Illingworth & Gregory were committed to a high quality product at every stage of the construction under the close supervision of architects, Townscape, quantity surveyor, Derrick Kershaw and project manager, LHL Group .



Jack Berry  "The opening of Jack Berry House is one of the proudest moments of my life. I know from personal experience how important it is to get good treatment as soon as possible when injuries occur – this will be a wonderful base for northern jockeys and I am so grateful for the many generous people who have made it possible through their donations and legacies. Simply every penny we receive, whether it be a large cheque or a £10 note, really has and will continue to make a difference to us."


Brough Scott, Chairman of the Injured Jockeys Fund: “The great thing about Oaksey House in Lambourn was that both the local and the wider community got behind it. I am confident the same thing will now happen with Jack Berry House.”

John Fairley, the Malton based Trustee of the Injured Jockeys Fund: "This is a wonderful investment in the racing town of Malton and for racing in general in the northern half of the country." 

Jockey Graham Lee: “I know myself how much awareness of fitness has changed in the last 10 years and Jack Berry House will hugely help Northern jockeys with their fitness, recovery and rehab. We are thrilled it is now open.”
