Stubby has been put into an induced coma after that bad fall in the second last Eagle Farm.

Apparently possible brain hemorrhage

Fingers crossed he comes out OK  :sad:

Hope everything goes well for Jason.  The racenet report seems to indicate he has gone to hospital for tests and observation but I dare say MagiC info is probably better.

Anyway whatever hope he recovers soon.  For mine the best rider in Brisbane.

Funny game this.  The Magic Millions winning jockey Jason Holder was on top ogf the world last Sat and slammed down on the turf today at Eagle Farm.  Jason took a rough tumble from the Jim Atkins trained Oscar The Great and has been rushed to hospital.

Lets hope all is well.

Sorry Westie, I did not see this thread.  Please shut the one I just opened.

I was with JJ and Reid Sanders after the event and the news was not a happy story.  Jason is in the Royal Bris Hospital.

Lets all hope things go well for him.

Shocking luck for any jockey to be in a fall right in the midst of a field.  A couple of runners seemed to close up and OTG had nowhere to go.

Hoping like hell that Jason will pull through.

A little history on Jason sorry it's a couple of years out of date (written 20th April 2006)

Jason Holder, (Stubby as he is known), lives at Ashmore and has been riding for more than 14 years. Coming to Qld from SA he is one of the most experienced riders currently in Brisbane, having ridden over a 1000 winners from more than 5000 rides. Jason has won 3 Group 1 races (Adelaide Cup, SA Derby and the Goodwood Hcp), 50 Group 3ís and 46 Listed races.

His biggest thrill was running 3rd in the 96 Melbourne Cup on the roughie Skybeau, in the race won by Saintly. He has ridden winners in Macau and Hong Kong, and rates Gold Guru as the best horse he has ridden. One of his biggest disappointments in racing was not getting his Hong Kong contract renewed after he suffered a suspension on his first winner which put him out of action at a time when he had just started to establish himself.

He loves the thrill of riding a winner and relaxes by spending time with his 5 year-old daughter and going to the movies. Like most jockeys he doesnít enjoy wasting and hates putting in a bad ride, saying he is tough on himself as any owner or trainer could be.

Jason credits most of his learning to Leon McDonald who he was apprenticed to and had a 14 year working relationship with. Of todays current riders he feels Damien Oliver, Darren Beadman and Michael Cahill to be the ones he admires the most.

A lot of people are barracking for you Jason.

News on Sky is that Jason remains in an induced coma.  Given the injuries he sustained yesterday, I think it'll be quite a while before we'll know the prognosis.

Terrible time for family, friends, colleagues and fans.

Positive signs for injured jockey Jason Holder
Brad Waters
Friday, 16 January 2009


Injured jockey Jason Holder remains in the Royal Brisbane Hospital in an induced coma after his shocking fall on Wednesday but positive signs have emerged overnight.
 
"The doctors took a set of scans last night and had a look at them and they have told us that they look promising," Holder's manager Tad Pattillo said.
 
"He's opened his eyes a few times in the last 24 hours and has responded to hand squeezes on a few occasions.
 
"Things are looking on the brighter side for him, they are hoping that he might wake up today.
 
"He has a few tubes down his throat at the moment and hopefully once he wakes up and is calm enough, the doctors can remove the tubes."
 
Holder is confirmed to have a fractured skull and and a fractured cheekbone and will be out of the saddle for an indefinite period but Pattillo said the signs are good for Holder.
 
"From what they saw, the doctors are pretty pleased with Jason at the moment and that's terrific news," he said.

Why arn't Authorities looking into New Helmets for these guys

Not sure if anybody seen the "New Inventors" on ABC a couple of weeks ago,

Anyway there was an invention on there that reduces head injuries by up to 20%, it is a foam mould that is built into the helmut with special cones to help absorb the impact.

Should the ARB or who ever the authorities are be looking into bringing this technology into racing with the amount of head injuries being sustained ?

I will try and find a link to it.
