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