New Zealand jockey Alysha Collett has been relicensed in Singapore and expects to back riding there soon after eight months on the sidelines because of injury.

The 25-year-old damaged her L1 vertebra and fractured her right heel in a fall in Singapore in October.

After undergoing surgery in Singapore to have metal rods and screws inserted, Collett returned home to continue her rehabilitation.

She is hoping to get a medical clearance next week with her six-month Singapore contract coming into effect from July 1.

“For four months I lost everything (fitness-wise) because I couldn’t move properly,” Collett told NZ Racing Desk.

“I couldn’t do a lot with the rods in. They were a massive restriction.

“But since I had the operation about five weeks ago to have the rods removed I’ve been able to do more and start to get my fitness back.

“There is a little bit of restriction because of the scar tissue, but I’ve been working on it and gradually in the last two weeks I’ve got more freedom.

“I see my surgeon next Monday and hopefully I will get my clearance to start race riding again.”

During her time on the sidelines, Collett did television appearances as part of the Trackside presentation team at the major summer racing carnivals and, although she enjoyed the media experience, she said her riding career remained her main focus.
