Racing: McEvoy in hospital after fall at Australian racecourse
Friday 10 November 2006
Kerrin McEvoy, second jockey to the Godolphin stable, has been taken to hospital in Melbourne after a fall at Flemington racecourse in Australia.
McEvoy, who was seriously injured at the same meeting last year, was riding Butterfield in the Crown Trophy when he appeared to clip the heels of Vie, ridden by Dwayne Dunn. The pair crashed to the turf and although Dunn was soon on his feet, McEvoy was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a conscious and stable state. He is thought to have suffered bruising to the brain and possibly a cracked vertebra.
