Berry Ready For Perth Group One
After having an 8 month suspension away from racing, Berry believes identifying what makes him happy will be an added bonus when he attempts to add another Group One title to his collection this Saturday in Western Australia.
Berry believes that in his 8 months away from the saddle he had been able to reflect properly on the loss of his brother in 2014 and also place family and his relationships at the forefront of what he does.
"I figured out what makes me happy while I was off and what I've got to do to keep myself happy and in a good frame of mind," Berry told News Corp.
"My family and my Mum and Dad and sister are what keep me happy - and also just looking after myself, keeping my body fit.
"Now I am feeling good, everything seems to be flowing along great. I am in a lot better head space now that I am fit and happy."
On Saturday, Berry is out to add to his Group One tally during the Railway Stakes in Perth. Berry is set to team up with Chris Waller and gun runner Roots over the 1600m at WA’s Ascot Course marking the first G1 of there Winter Racing Carnival.
Berry was aboard Roots for her most recent win where she was able to demolish the Group 2 Hot Danish Field with an Explosive turn of foot.
Berry pointed to her form over the mile in Melbourne last year as credentials for why she could win the Group One Railway.
"She's knows what she is doing going in the direction they race in Perth," Berry said.
"What she has done in Melbourne has shown that she gets on that leg very well and so that's not going to be an issue.
"She has been a strong winner at the mile. The day she won at Flemington, it is a tough mile on a big track, she really pulled away from them late.
"So the distance isn't going to be any query."
Berry is set to fly to Perth from Sydney on Friday and will race on the Railway Stakes card the following day at Ascot.
