Jockey Steven King had a barrier accident today at Seymour races and has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg. Lets hope the news is better once the Doctors have seen him. Would be a great shame to have him out at this time of year.

Not at all mate I see you have four gold stars.  I was going to move the thread on Beadman also but thought twice in one day was a bit much.  Oh! and I wish Steven a quick recovery not that it will be with two fractures.

Perhaps DG could take him out fishing.

Update:

On Sunday night the champion jockey, who has ridden more than 50 Group One races in Australia and Asia, had surgery to pin a spiral facture of his left leg after his mount Hargitay flipped over in the barrier at Seymour.

King's manager Dean Faster said the surgeon had confirmed King would be sidelined for six months.

"Not being able to ride Leica Falcon is devastating for him," Fraser said.

"Steven was waiting 12 months to have chance to ride him and has kept in touch with Richard Freyer over the last 12 months to see how the horse was going."

King was also in the running to ride El Segundo this spring as well as Zupaone, who won Saturday's Spring Stakes in Adelaide, and Group One Goodwood Handicap winner Let Go Thommo.

"It's disappointing for Steven but he is upbeat and keeps telling me he will be back bigger and better," Fraser said.

King set to fight 13-meeting ban
Brad Waters
Monday, 28 September 2009


In-form Melbourne jockey Steven King will appeal a careless riding suspension in a bid to ride Predatory Pricer in Saturday’s Group I Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington.

King was suspended for 13 meetings after being found guilty of careless riding aboard Testaguy in the Malua Handicap (1800m), stewards banning King until midnight on October 9.

Predatory Pricer’s trainer Paul Murray said he was “pleased” King has decided to appeal.

Murray will not decide on a replacement rider for the veteran jockey until King’s appeal is heard on Tuesday.

“I’ll make decision if he loses his appeal,” Murray said. “I’ve had quite a few jockeys and their managers on the phone over the past few hours. I’ve got a few options.”

Murray said Hong Kong-based rider Brett Prebble was among the front-runners for the ride.

STEVEN King will be a spectator when leading Cox Plate contender Predatory Pricer runs in Saturday's Group 1 Turnbull Stakes at Flemington.

King lost his appeal to the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board against a 13-meeting suspension imposed at Caulfield last Sunday.

While he changed his appeal against the careless riding charge to against the severity of the penalty, King did not gain any sympathy.

RADB chairman Russell Lewis agreed with Racing Victoria Limited chief steward Terry Bailey, who said while King put his whip away he didn't stop riding and that degree of carelessness cause a chain reaction of interference to five horses.

Bailey described the interference as in the high range, which equates in spring to a 14-meeting suspension.

He said stewards shaved off one meeting as they believed the wayward behaviour of the horse contributed in some small way to the trouble.

King can resume riding on Caulfield Guineas day, October 8.

The suspension means he will also miss the ride on Cats Whisker in the Group 2 Blazer Stakes.

South Australian jockey Dominic Tourneur had his appeal dismissed against a 10-meeting suspension following his winning ride on Alcopop in the JRA Cup
