BERRY SUSPENDED AFTER CARELESS RIDING

Sydney hoop Tommy Berry has been suspended after carless riding aboard a late pick up ride saw him in trouble with the stewards. It’ll be mixed emotions in a day where the jockey gained a black type victory quickly followed by the force of the officials

Tommy Berry Suspended for carless riding

Jockey Tommy Berry was in hot water on Saturday after he won the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes aboard Anamoe. A ride which saw the hoop suspended after crossing the finish line.

Berry wasn’t originally booked to ride the Godolphin trained Ananmoe, however illness to booked jockey Hugh Bowman gave Berry the chance aboard the Cox Plate runner up.

The Hobartville Stakes itself saw Berry steer Anamoe to a narrow victory over Hilal who stormed up the inside late requiring a kick from the Godolphin Colt to win the Group 2. 

It was inside the final 50m however that interested the stewards as Berry allowed Ananmoe to shift his line across the fast finishing Ranch Hand forcing the Chris Waller runner to lose momentum at a crucial time.

Racing NSW chief steward Marc Van Gestel told Berry when handing over the 6 race meeting suspension that his carelessness was “bordering on high degree” and subsequently handed out the appropriate sanction.

The ban commences for Berry after next Saturday’s Surround Stakes where Berry is set to partner Jamaea in the main race of the day.

The six race suspension could be a costly one for Berry who had rides for the Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket, Group 1 Randwick Guineas and Group 3 Kembla Grange Classic scheduled in the coming weeks. 

Berry should be able to jump back in the saddle at Rosehill on Coolmore Classic Day.
