Unfortunately, I had a very nasty fall on Saturday evening at Kempton onboard Red Armour for James Ferguson. It is very sad for James and her owner and I’m gutted for them.
I was quite sore in the aftermath, so my boyfriend Nick kindly picked me up and Jimmy Quinn drove my car home. Everyone in the weighing room was incredibly helpful and Josie (Gordon) even ran down the track to see if I was ok!
I got home and was still very sore, so I got onto Jerry Hill. Dr Jerry Hill is the PJA doctor and is a great help to us all whenever something like this happens. He spoke to Kempton’s team and they guessed what might have happened to my shoulder. Jerry managed to squeeze me in to see Geoff Graham who looks after all the National Hunt guys in Cardiff. I was really lucky to get an MRI scan on Monday with him as it’s a nightmare getting anything in at the moment. I got the results back yesterday which confirmed I have dislocated my collarbone. The recovery shouldn’t take too long (I’m hoping) so hopefully I’ll be back riding soon.
All in all, I feel fortunate as it could have been so much worse.
Thank you for all your kind messages after Ascot and after my fall on Saturday.
