Saturday 22 April 2023 and it’s the first time Jockey Tom Sherry has ever been to Doomben Racecourse. Today he will provide a double for the stable and ride the circuit like he has ridden there a thousand times before.
Race two saw Tom bring home well-bred Iowa (Galileo/Bridal Dance) for Darby Racing Syndications in the Sky Racing Handicap over 2200m. Superbly ridden, it was an easy watch with Iowa winning by 3.75 lengths.
The next winning ride for the stable came in race 7 where we had our ‘Princess’, Street Gossip (So You Think/Wahng Wah) compete in the Eureka Stud Princess Stakes over 1615m. She jumped from barrier 4, went forward to settle just off the fence but soon found herself three-wide but travelling well within herself. Gaining momentum at the turn she found free passage and quickly gathered up the leader. Powering away in the straight she showed her true brilliance to win by nearly 2 lengths.
One of our great days in racing with another terrific double for the stable, congratulations to all owners and connections. Well done Tom, showing what a great riding talent he is!
