Jockey McEvoy Consults Spine Expert, Prebble Suffers Pelvic Fracture After Racing Falls

In Melbourne, decorated jockey Kerrin McEvoy is currently hospitalized following a serious incident at the Rosehill racetrack on Saturday. The respected rider, known for multiple victories in the prestigious Melbourne Cup, encountered the accident during the Birthday Card Stakes.

Racing NSW provided an update on McEvoy’s condition the following day, informing the public that he had been admitted to the hospital with neck pain. According to their statement, McEvoy is under the care of a spinal specialist and is awaiting scan results to ascertain the extent of his injuries.

The accident occurred when McEvoy’s mount, Tintookie, experienced a catastrophic breakdown at the top of the straight, which led to an unfortunate fall. Tragedy compounded as Tintookie, the horse trained by Brad Widdup, had to be euthanized due to the severity of its injuries, despite having won five races and amassed nearly half-a-million dollars in prize earnings.

McEvoy, who had triumphed in the Group 1 The Galaxy atop Zapateo just 35 minutes prior to the fall, was attended to on the track by paramedics. He was conscious following the incident.

In a separate occurrence, Tom Prebble, an apprentice jockey and son of renowned jockey Brett Prebble, also suffered a significant injury at the Benalla race meeting on the same day.
