Dislocated Hip – Champ Out For Six Weeks

Greyville first race pull-up incident

Veteran jockey Mark Khan is out of theatre after being operated on for a dislocated hip following a fall from his mount Noble Beat just after the pull-up of the first race at Greyville today.

Khan, who recently relocated to KZN where he has been riding with plenty of success, finished third on Noble Beat in the Greyville opener.

He was rushed to hospital where x-rays revealed the injury.

A five-times South African Champion Jockey on 5 occasions, Khan announced his retirement from the saddle in 2010 after sustaining injuries in a fall the previous season.  He made a short-lived comeback to the saddle at the beginning of last season and missed further race riding due to incurring a serious knee injury while riding work.

He has, however, been riding with renewed vigour since focussing on the coastal centre.

A reliable source told the Sporting Post that Khan is out of surgery, had managed a smile and expects to be out of action for six weeks.
