Lyle – Latest On The Champion

Good news as he is about to move from ICU

Following a dreadful accident during the running of the Gr1 Longines Hong Kong Sprint at Sha Tin on Sunday, where he and three colleagues suffered a fall and two horses were euthanized, multiple SA champion Lyle Hewitson has received some positive news.

Bruised and battered – but happy to be alive! Lyle Hewitson smiles from his hospital bed

Doctors are happy with his CT Scan results and are about to move the champion to a General Ward and then to the Hong Kong Jockey Club Hospital.

His Mom Samantha told the Sporting Post that the news was ‘such a great relief’.

Australian star Zac Purton is currently being treated for upper-body injuries at Prince of Wales hospital but both he and Japanese Jockey Yuichi Fukunaga are reportedly in a stable condition.

Mauritian Karis Teetan was the only rider in the quartet to continue on the day.

    Good News. A dreadful incident that is horrendous to watch. How Teetan got to finish the day after that I just don’t know. One would think that He would be relieved of His rides for the rest of the day as a matter of course.
