Australian Jockey In Horror Fall And Could Be Left Quadriplegic

Australian jockey Tye Angland has suffered an horrific fall at Sha Tin racecourse in Hong Kong and could be left paralysed in all four of his limbs after picking up a serious spinal injury in the dreadful accident in Asia.

The 29 year old from down under was sent head first towards the floor when the horse Go Beauty Go who he was on board in the one mile handicap contest on November 25th, stumbled at the start of the race.

The initial injuries for the jockey were horrendous with a predicted fracturing and dislocating of his spine and an added injury on his spinal cord.

Angland spent two weeks in an intensive care facility in Hong Kong and from there as then flown to Sydney to have on going treatments. To this day the Australian born rider is still in the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney.

A statement was released on Thursday by the Australian Jockeys Association and they confirmed that the 29 year old was constantly being monitored but may never again have the full use of his legs.

(Credit Racing Post) The statement read: "As a result of the fall, Tye had a fracture and dislocation of the spine as well as a spinal cord injury. The spine has been stabilised and realigned.

"Tye's doctors advise the long-term prognosis for injuries of this nature are always hard to diagnose in the early stages. However, there remains a likelihood of Tye's outcome being quadriplegic."

The statement added: "His wife Erin, and the couple's three children Alexis, Addison and Rylan have been overwhelmed by the support they have received and wish to say thank you to everyone who has reached out to them.

"The family has requested their privacy as they deal with this very difficult situation."

The rider was only racing at Sha Tin as a one off occasion to assist the Hong Kong jockey club due to the amount of jockey injuries and suspensions currently in the sport at the moment.

This was not his first time riding in Hong Kong however as he spent four years from 2010 to 2014 there. Angland who is known for how closely he works with one of Australia's leading trainers Chris Waller, trainer of Winx, went on to ride 43 winners across 2018 and during his career has gone on to win 11 Group 1s.
