Nathan Berry’s only Melbourne Cup day ride didn’t go to plan but the trip certainly proved worthwhile as it led to his first winner for Hall of Fame trainer David Hayes at Rosehill on Saturday.

When Berry knew he would be headed to Flemington to partner Sense Of Pride for trainer Grahame Begg in a minor race on Melbourne Cup day, he rang Hayes about visiting his state-of-the-art Lindsay Park property at Euroa in rural Victoria.

Sense Of Pride finished last on Cup day but the two days spent riding work for Hayes at Euroa and then Flemington contributed to the young jockey partnering Rose Pattern to a narrow win in the Sportsyear Handicap (1350m).

“A week before Melbourne Cup day I gave David a call and asked if I could come and have a look at the property and ride a bit of work,” Berry said.

“I thought it would be quite exciting to have a look at the place everyone is talking about.

“I went there with Chad (Schofield) on the Monday before the Cup. He drove me there and I rode about six to eight horses in work. It’s just an amazing place.

“I hadn’t really introduced myself properly to Mr Hayes before and it was just good to meet him in person and work alongside him for that day.”

He said that week he had two rides for Hayes and his victory on Rose Pattern was his third ride for the trainer this week.

“The ball is rolling now and it’s just good to get a winner for him to repay him,” Berry said.

Rose Pattern got home in a thrilling finish, defeating Secluded by a short head with Titbit a half-head away third.
