Sydney Jockey Tom Sherry has four-month Covid ban halved

The jockey, who had 40 metropolitan winners last season, will return on November 15. Racing NSW also banned trainer John Sharah for nine months relating to similar offences, while fellow Sydney jockey Jay Ford was forced to forfeit his ride on Epsom Handicap (Gr 1, 1600m) winner Private Eye (Al Maher) as he was isolating after testing positive for the virus for attending trackwork while he waited for the result of a Covid-19 test, which later came back positive, slashed in half.
