Berry Secures Tosen Stardom Ride for 2015 Sydney Autumn Carnival

Japanese raider Tosen Stardom will travel to Australia for the first time to contest the autumn carnival in Sydney and will have Tommy Berry in the saddle after his connections booked the champion hoop.

Berry told TVN on Friday morning that he got in contact with the four-year-old horse’s Japanese owners after Gai Waterhouse (who Berry regularly rides for) told him she didn’t have much for him in the months leading up to The Championships.

Tosen Stardom will be aimed at the $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick Racecourse on April 11 and is also expected to contest the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on March 21 during his autumn campaign in Sydney.

“I received a phone call from Mr (John) Messara as he had been contacted by Japanese connections inquiring whether I would be available,” Berry said.

“I spoke with Gai Waterhouse and she didn’t have much for me heading towards the Queen Elizabeth so I got in touch with the Japanese owners and locked in the ride.

“I was offered a contract to ride in Japan before I went to Hong Kong, apparently they have had their eyes on me for a while and it is great to be able to get on a horse with plenty of upside.

“The Japanese horses have showed how good they are when they come here and hopefully it could lead to more opportunities.”

Tosen Stardom earned his first career win on December 13 in the Group 3 Challenge Cup (1800m) at Hanshin. The horse is expected to enter quarantine in early February before making the trip to Australia.

Sydney still doesn’t have its own quarantine centre but Canterbury is expected to be given the green light for the upcoming autumn carnival.

Tosen Stardom is an $11 shot in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes futures betting at Ladbrokes.com.au alongside German raider Ivanhowe.
