Jockey Ryan Moore has confirmed that he broke his wrist on Tuesday evening at Warwick and will now not be able to compete in this Ebor Festival at York.
Moore currently leads the way in the Jockeys’ Championship but this injury could deal a big blow to his hopes of winning the title.
Those assessing Horse racing tips from Bet Victor note how he has been in the wars a bit of late and it seems as though this was one fall too many.
Moore said: “I had my third fall in as many weeks at Warwick last night – following on from Romeo Montague at Goodwood and Havana Gold in Deauville – and the bad news is that it is third time unlucky and I have broken my left wrist.”
It seems as though Moore was also far from happy about the course at Warwick as well, he has had a lot of falls there in the past and believes that the course might need looking at.
He added: “I don’t know how long I will be out for, but I can tell you that I am not happy.
“And it’s not the first time I have slipped and come off at Warwick: I can’t remember the name of the horse but it was a Highclere horse of Richard’s (Hannon) a few years back, a Green Desert I think, when I was a kid. It’s fair to say it is not a course I am particularly fond of.
“In my opinion, the problem was that the grass was far too long and lush, and that can always cause problems.
“What really annoys me is that I think it was avoidable.”
Punters interested in Horse racing odds will be pleased to hear that officials at the course at Warwick were happy with the conditions though and insist it was safe throughout the event.
The track had been inspected by a course inspector prior to the racing, so everything that should have been done was done so by an expert.
It was the inspected after Moore’s incident and was again passed as safe, something which is sure to leave the Jockey less than pleased.
However, the race after this went incident free and there were no more complaints from anyone else.
