JOCKEY IN TRAUMA WARD

Jason Taylor.




RACING Queensland Jockey Welfare has reported Jason Taylor has been moved from ICU to the Trauma Ward at Gold Coast University Hospital after a shocking incident at the Gold Coast races on Saturday.

Taylor was diagnosed with eight broken ribs, a punctured lung, facial injuries and bruising following the freak incident which occurred as horses were entering the barriers for the fourth race.

The veteran jockey was crushed under his mount Final Ascent after the first starter flipped backwards on him before the QTIS 3YO Maiden Handicap.

Paramedics and ambulance officers treated Taylor at the track before he was transported to hospital in a serious but stable condition.

He was just behind the barriers and the horse reared up and fell back on him, GCTC boss Ian Brown said.

ENDS

Hopefully he''l make a full recovery a freak accident but shows how dangerous a jockey's life can be.

Group 1-winning jockey Jason Taylor feels he has cheated death and says he has been overwhelmed by support from the racing community after being crushed and kicked by a horse in a horror incident.

In his first interview since suffering nine broken ribs, a punctured lung and facial injuries, Taylor has told how he feels lucky to be alive.

The popular Gold Coast jockey, who won the 2011 Stradbroke Handicap on Sincero, was seriously injured in the barriers at the Gold Coast races last Saturday after a horse he was riding stood in the air and flipped on top of him on the ground and then kicked him in the head.

I feel like I have dodged a bullet, Taylor told Racenet from his Gold Coast hospital bed.

Jockey Jason Taylor suffered serious injuries in a horror barrier accident at Gold Coast races.

I am glad to be alive but I do think things could have gone the other way quite quickly.

I remember the horse laying on top of me and thrashing and I do remember getting kicked in the head but my next memory was getting needles from the ambos.

I have got patchy recollections of how it evolved but the barrier staff and the ambos were absolutely marvellous.

The messages and the support from people in racing has been overwhelming.

I havent been able to answer anyone really, my wife has been there answering all the messages, its just been amazing all the wellwishers.

Taylors wife Alana and daughter Jess have been regularly by his hospital bedside and the expectation at one stage was the jockey may have been able to leave hospital on Thursday.

But that has now been put on hold.

I had been making good progress and but I went downhill last night (Tuesday night) and I was struggling a lot this morning (Wednesday), Taylor said.

Im just taking it each day as it comes, its just baby steps now.

I have fractured nine ribs and have got a hole in my right lung and the lung has got a little bit of blood and fluids in it.

The main concern is keeping my lungs moving and making sure I am getting enough oxygen in the right lung.

Veteran jockey Taylor, who has been on pain blockers and other medication to make him comfortable in hospital, said he has no thoughts of retiring from the riding career he loves.

He is sure he will be back in the saddle, although his first priority is his health.

Im keen to get back into it (riding), although obviously my body will take time to repair, he said. The injuries were quite significant.
