Fracture – But Ryan’s Going To Be Okay

Shocking fall after post

Jockey Ryan Munger could be out of action for six weeks after fracturing his collar bone when falling at the pull-up of the fourth race at Turffontein today.

Ryan Munger – clavicle fractured

Munger, who has been in a  rich vein of form, came off the Ashley Fortune trained 2yo Union Castle, who appeared to peck after the line.

Sadly Union Castle was humanely euthanised.

Munger has been in fine fettle, having ridden 113 winners and is in fifth position on the national log.

A source from on course at Turffontein contacted the Sporting Post to convey the fact that the popular jockey was badly shaken but would make a full recovery.

The apparent lack of interest on the part of racing’s officialdom in following up on the young rider’s condition was pointed out as being a sad reality – apparently reflected also in a recent fall by S’manga Khumalo.

We wish Ryan a speedy recovery.

    Another jockey down. I wonder if anyone cares.
    These injuries should be made into a big deal and followed up daily for us the public.

    The current motto is- Don’t broadcast.
    Tellytrack tried and got shot down.

    Come on authorities. Tell us how our jockeys are doing.
    You owe them that after your unprofessional, thoughtless approach to the matter.
