Nicola Currie Hopes To Be Back In The Saddle After Fall

One of the most up and coming jockeys in the sport at the moment is Nicola Currie and last week she was left in some pain after she unseated from her ride Arzaak in a five furlong sprint handicap at Yarmouth.

The female rider has been off the track since that fall and she hopes that she is not off the track for a lengthy spell of time but with her currently residing at the rehabilitation centre Oaksey House in Lambourn it is unsure when she will be back.

Currie back in May joined an elite racing group of individuals by breaking into the top 10 winning most female riders in Britain which was a superb achievement for the rider.

"It was my lower back and we thought there could be a small fracture, but thankfully that's all fine. There might be possible nerve damage due to the slap of it, but we're still just waiting for the results back.

"I was meant to have had them for the last three days and was hoping it would be today. I'm not overly mobile at the minute and haven't been riding out. It's still causing a lot of pain and I'll have a clearer idea when I get the results of whether we can kick on or be rested."

The female jockey in 2018 became a big player on the track landing 81 winners for the season and truly staking her claim as one of the best female riders in the sport and has since, this season picked up some big rides in some decent contests.

Her biggest win came last October at Ascot on board the Jamie Osborne trained Raising Sand in the Challenge Cup at Ascot and she is hoping she can grab some more big wins before the end of the season.

She is on 40 winners this season and will be looking to ad to that when she is back riding and the jockey said: "I think it's looking good and hopefully I can kick on at Oaksey House.

"I'm there every day, just getting ready to go again."
