Promising apprentice Aidin Thompson appears to have escaped serious injury after being taken to hospital following a two-horse fall Beaudesert.

Thompson was riding Uno Amor which crashed to the turf and Conquermore ridden by Les Tilley came down over the top of him in the race on Saturday.

Thompson’s boss Peter Hulbert said he had spoken with Thompson who said he was lucky as a horse rolled on him after the fall.

“He had a sore leg and sore ribs but the hospital cleared him of any breaks,” Hulbert said.

Tilley, who won a race at Doomben earlier in the day, also escaped serious injury.

Thompson was granted a provincial A licence this week and is rated among the most promising apprentices in Queensland.

Thompson is apprenticed to Peter and Will Hulbert at Eagle Farm but has been riding all over the state this season.

He rode a treble at Cairns on Thursday as well as winners at Charters Towers, Toowoomba and Townsville in the past eight days.

Thompson has 52 winners this season to his credit and is the leading apprentice in the state.

He made his provincial debut at Ipswich on Friday and was unplaced on Suzi Bel.

Peter Hulbert said Thompson had the ability to be a top jockey and had a good work ethic.

“He can ride light and he is level headed which is a big start. He is the real deal as he can break in horses, shoe them and the like,” he said.

The Hulberts, who train at Eagle Farm, will run filly Oh Five Glory in the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes on her home track on Saturday.

Oh Five Glory has drawn double digit barriers for her past two starts when third and seventh and Hulbert hopes that will change.

“Surely it is our turn to get a decent alley and she will show them what she can do,” he said.
