Jockey hospitalised after frightening Randwick fall


//

Jockey Andrew Adkins has been rushed to hospital for precautionary tests after a frightening fall in the opening race at Randwick.

Adkins was riding War Baron in the Fernhill Handicap when he fell heavily off the mare in while approaching the final 50m of the race.

Fellow jockey Glyn Schofield, who was riding Persan, also fell of his horse but got away unscathed as he immediately rushed to Adkins' aid.

Despite his frightening fall, Racing NSW confirmed that Adkins was conscious and was suffering a suspected concussion after the fall.

Both War Baron and Persan got up and continued to gallop after the fall before being captured by a clerk of courses. War Baron appeared to be in good health despite the fall.

The race was eventually won by Power Scheme ($7.50) by a short half-head over Foxborough ($12) and Extraordinary ($41).

Stewards are set to launch an inquiry into the incident later on in the day.
