Tommy Berry To Ride On Saturday

Posted on March 27th, 2014 by Red Belly Sports

Jockey Tommy Berry will return from his sick brother’s bedside in Singapore to ride in Saturday’s George Ryder Stakes meeting at Rosehill.


Berry has been with twin brother Nathan in a Singapore hospital, since he collapsed during trackwork last week.


Nathan was subsequently placed in an induced coma, after being diagnosed with NORSE syndrome, a condition related to eplilepsy.


Berry is determined to boot home a winner for his ill brother, telling News Corp “Nothing will change with Nathan’s condition if I come home.


“I feel I can do more for Nathan back home by trying to ride a winner for him. That’s what he would want.


“The only time I won’t be thinking about him is when the gates open until the winning post,’’ said Berry.


Berry has a full book of rides for Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse.
