Type: Club Jockey
Tommy Berry grew up around horses at the Warwick Farm stable of his father Kevin Berry, a former jockey. Berry began his career in 2007 and was Sydney champion apprentice in 2009/10. After a spell as stable jockey to Gai Waterhouse from April, 2011, he turned freelance in early 2015. His first short-term contract with the Hong Kong Jockey Club ran from 28 April, 2013 until that season's end and yielded 22 wins. Berry became the first HKJC licensed rider to win a G1 on the first day of his contract when successful aboard Military Attack in the 2013 APQEII Cup. In 2014 he became the third rider to notch back-to-back QEII Cup wins thanks to Designs On Rome. His first G1 win came on Epaulette in the 2012 Golden Rose Stakes. He moved to Hong Kong full-time at the start of the 2017/18 season to ride as retained jockey for the John Moore stable.
