A trust fund has been established to help the family of jockey Carly-Mae Pye who died on Tuesday from injuries she received in a track work fall a day earlier.
Pye was riding a two-year-old in a jump-out when it fractured both front legs and crashed to the track.
The horse rolled on Pye who suffered severe head, neck and chest injuries.
She was taken to the Rockhampton Hospital where she died on Tuesday afternoon.
Racing Queensland chief executive Darren Condon said the fund would help Pye’s family defray costs.
The Rockhampton Jockey Club will honour Pye at its meeting on Saturday which is a community event and usually attracts the club’s biggest crowd of the year.
Flags were at half mast at race meetings around the country on Wednesday and jockeys wore black armbands to honour Pye.
Also on Wednesday, two fellow riders, Libby Hopwood and apprentice Caitlin Forrest, were taken to hospital following a four-horse fall at Murray Bridge in South Australia.
Apprentice Forrest was flown to Royal Adelaide Hospital while Hopwood was taken to Murray Bridge Hospital for observation.
Forrest was reportedly semi conscious and responsive before being taken to Adelaide.
