Racing: Dunwoody gives up rides as Dobbin lengthens the injured list
Friday 21 November 1997
Dunwoody's injuries were not too serious after a fall from the Ron Hodges- trained Full Of Bounce in the chase won by Sunley Bay. The Ulsterman complained of "whiplash" and gave up his remaining two rides.
For Tony Dobbin and Darren O'Sullivan there was rather more pain and last night they were facing the agony of having dislocated shoulders put back into place after suffering falls at either end of the country.
While Dobbin was relieved to discover, after an x-ray examination at North Tees General Hospital, that he had not fractured his shoulder, O'Sullivan was having his shoulder put back in place at Yeovil Hospital.
"Tony has a bad dislocation and he has chipped his shoulder bone," Dobbin's agent, Richard Hale, said. "He faces a spell off."
Alongside that pair in racing's sick bay with long-term injuries are Jamie Osborne, Jim Culloty, Adie Smith, Lorcan Wyer and Russ Studholme.
