A horseshoe brought Gary Carter bad luck at Leicester yesterday when the jockey suffered a bruised right knee after being struck by a loose plate.

Carter, riding Pip's Addition in the Sutton Selling Stakes, was at the back of the 13-runner field when a shoe came flying from the pack and hit him on the right kneecap. Carter, in great pain, was unable to give any assistance to the horse who finished well beaten.
