Loy in hospital after trackwork incident

NSW jockey Brodie Loy is facing a stint on the sidelines after a trackwork incident forced the young hoop to spend Tuesday night in hospital.

Racing NSW confirmed Loy was riding at Warwick Farm on Tuesday when a horse reared over on him on the morning.

He was treated by paramedics at the scene and had to be transported to Liverpool Hospital for precautionary measures.

Loy is expected to spend overnight in the hospital but took to his personal Instagram to give an update on his condition later that afternoon.

“Clear of any fractures just bleeding around the body and spine, thanks everyone for all your messages,” Loy said in the post.

Loy was unsurprisingly ruled out of riding at Goulburn on Tuesday due to the fall and could be facing a lengthy stint on the sidelines as he endeavours to get back to full health.

He has been riding in strong form with limited opportunities over the past few months and piloted a winning treble when he travelled to Goulburn last month.

One of those victories came on the Annabel Neasham-trained Commanding Missile, which has been nominated for the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) on Saturday at Randwick.
