Khumalo Fall – Tellytrack Apology

Two jockeys down at Kenilworth

Tellytrack have apologised to the racing fraternity for the insensitive broadcasting of jockey S’manga Khumalo’s nasty fall while riding Ibra in Race 2 at Kenilworth on Tuesday.

S’manga Khumalo – bad fall

In a press release issued on Tuesday 16 April 2019, Tellytrack state that Khumalo was sent to hospital for x-rays after the fall.

The 27-10 second favourite was battling it out with Mirage (43-20) with about 100m to go when she seemed to falter and fell, pitching Khumalo onto the turf.

He was given lengthy treatment before being taken to hospital.

“Mr Khumalo had slurred speech, felt drowsy, a headache and neck pain. He also reported a thumb injury.

“He was sent to hospital for x-rays and further examination,” said Kenilworth on-course medical officer Dr Godwin Carelse.

Ibra herself was unhurt.
