An apprentice jockey is in a critical condition in the John Hunter Hospital after the second fall in two days at the Gunnedah races.
Emergency services were called to Gunnedah Jockey Club at 3:35pm yesterday afternoon.
A 26-year-old female jockey was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance Paramedics and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter’s Critical Care Medical Team for head injuries after falling from a horse.
The jockey was airlifted to the John Hunter with critical head injuries.
She was last reported to be in a critical condition.
It’s the second serious jockey accident in NSW in two days after a 24-year-old Brisbane-based jockey fell from a horse at Grafton on Sunday.
She remains in a coma.
