  • Hayley Turner has been released from hospital after suffering a crashing fall on Seal Of Approval at Doncaster yesterday (12 September).

    Britain’s leading female jockey only returned to racing 12 days ago having broken her ankle in a fall at Yarmouth earlier this summer (26 July).

    She fell with Seal of Approval when the horse clipped heels with another horse.

    Hayley received immediately treatment on the course before being transferred to Doncaster Royal Infirmary.

    She was kept in overnight but was released this morning after all her scans came back clear.

    Hayley’s agent, Guy Jewell, said: “Hayley has been released from hospital. She’s now at home with her mum and is just battered and bruised.

    “She is fine despite suffering significant soft tissue injuries.

    “The CT scan and X-rays all came back clear so she just has to receive from the bruising. Hopefully, she’ll be back sooner than later.”

    In 2012 Hayley became the first female jockey to win a Group One race outright, when she won the July Cup aboard Dream Ahead. She then followed it up with a second Group One win in the Nunthorpe with Margot Did.
