Tom Scudamore Breaks Wrist In Nasty Worcester Fall

Tom Scudamore

One of Britain's leading jumps jockeys Tom Scudamore will be off the track for sometime after suffering a broken wrist in a heavy fall at Worcester on Tuesday.

The rider was on board the David Pipe trained Malangen in the opening novices’ handicap chase when the horse suffered a heavy fall at the third fence from the home badly hampering Leaving Home in the process who also saw his jockey Sean Bowen left on the floor.

Scudamore seemed to have brave the fall and walked away from the fall but later on it was confirmed that he had picked up an injury that will now see him out of the sport for the coming weeks.

(Credit At The Races and PA News agency) The rider said: I’ve cracked my wrist and have a crack in one of my vertebra. I’m waiting for scans from that, but it’s nothing too serious.

“They don’t seem unduly worried about it, but they are keeping me in for more scans just to make it’s all fine and dandy.

“I hope to get it all fixed as soon as possible and the more thorough scans they do the sooner I’ll be back.

“I’ve no idea how long I’ll be out for until all the scans are done. I’m hoping it’s going to be as straight forward as can be.”

David Pipe suffered a horrendous week after the fall of his horse at Worcester but on the Monday at Newton Abbot it was much worse when unfortunately he saw two of his horses Timeforben and Noel’s Boy both suffering fatal injuries.

“They say these things come in threes, so fingers crossed it’s behind us now,” said Pipe.

It has been a bad week for jumps racing all round really with another jockey suffering some nasty injuries at Kelso when Callum Bewley took a fall Welcome Ben took down his horse which left the rider being taken to Hospital in Scotland for further analysis.

Welcome Ben was fatally injured after tumbling at the third fence and bringing down Beautiful Ben which Bewley was on.

Bewley’s agent, Richard Hale, said: “I spoke to his dad last night and it looks as though he’s tweaked a couple of ribs, but there no damage to any vertebrae or anything like that, thankfully.

“He’s obviously a bit sore, but he shouldn’t be off for too long, I wouldn’t have thought – maybe a week or two.”
