Champion jockey Glen Boss may be out of action for the upcoming spring racing carnival after suffering a suspected fractured shoulder, his manager says.

Boss was riding 2010 Golden Slipper winner Crystal Lily at trackwork on Friday morning when the mare apparently collapsed and died underneath him.

His manager Reece Murphy says the three-time Melbourne Cup winning jockey will remain at the Epworth Hospital in Melbourne overnight.

Murphy says Boss is in a lot of pain but it’s too early to say what damage has been done to his shoulder.

“I guess the scans and when everything comes back we will know how long he’ll be out of action for,” Murphy told reporters in Melbourne on Friday.

“It could be a month it could be a week were just not to sure.”

Boss now won’t be able to ride three-year-old Smart Missile in Saturday’s Group One Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield.

“It impacts tomorrow obviously but any further, we won’t know until later this afternoon,” Murphy said.

He said Boss had expressed his deepest regrets over the death of Crystal Lily.

Crystal Lily’s co-trainer Simon Zahra said the mare suffered a suspected heart attack during the jump-out.

“She was probably halfway through the trial and started to drop out suddenly and then collapsed to the ground,” Zahra, who was watching from the grandstand, told ABC Radio.

Zahra said there were no indications that the mare had any health problems.

“She’s never had any issues in her whole life, from day one,” he said.

“It’s an unfortunate incident.”

Zahra said it was devastating for everyone involved with Crystal Lily.
