In-form Sherry hopes tricky gate won’t make it a bridge too far

Tom Sherry might have a burgeoning reputation as the next big thing in the apprentice ranks but he says he’s more than happy to stick with the proven path his master, trainer Mark Newnham, set out from the beginning.

It’s been a huge season for Sherry, who had a 4kg claim at his first local ride at the start of October, and as he heads to Wyong on Thursday he’s greeted the judge first 88 times to lead the NSW provincial premiership with 49 wins.

For the 21-year-old to be staring at a century of wins, competing for less than 10 months of the season, it’s been a dream start and he’s now not far off his metro debut in Australia, likely next month, but that’s something Newnham is in control of.

“The boss has plans we’ll go to town in July and I’m sure he’ll let me ride some midweeks there and we can hit the ground running next season,’’ Sherry said.
