Promising Jockey Fergus Gregory Suffers Another Injury Setback

Young and promising conditional jockey Fergus Gregory has picked up another injury shortly after coming back from a previous serious fall which saw him out for nearly three months.

The up and coming rider did not make the best of starts to 2019 as when riding on New Year's Day at Catterick in the 3 mile 1 furlong Novice Chase for his stable boss Olly Murphy, he went on took a tumble and break his collarbone.

As distinguished this comes at a really bad time for the young jockey who back in May fell at Huntingdon and suffered a serious injury that saw him get bruising around the brain.

The clever apprentice could be out of action for just over two weeks at a best case scenario but just as he was getting back into his stride this is the last thing he needs says his number one trainer.

(Credit Racing Post) Olly Murphy said: “Fergus has broken his collarbone and will be having a quiet couple of weeks.

“It’s frustrating for him but it could have been a lot worse. It was a crunching fall.

“He’s been wandering round the yard this morning – Fergus loves to work – and hopefully will be back riding in a couple of weeks.”

Gregory, although being out for a lot of the national hunt season has still gone on to pick up some nice victories and really show how much he potential he holds for the future.

He has gone on to win 29 races over the jumps in Great Britain, with his most recent coming on the last day of 2018 at Warwick when winning on trainer Sam Drinkwater's Top Decision.

The rider will be looking to get back to racing as soon as possible but for the horse he fell on Piri Missini, he will also be out of racing for a while after still being monitored by vets.
