Apprentice Alex Stokes, one of three riders involved in a provincial race fall at the weekend, is hoping to ride on Tuesday.
Stokes was treated for shock following a fall at Newcastle on Saturday which hospitalised fellow apprentice Jake Hull and senior jockey Jeff Penza.
“Alex believes she is well enough to ride and she was hoping to get a doctor’s clearance,” Racing NSW jockey safety officer Maurice Logue said.
Stokes has two rides at Cessnock – both for trainer Dianne Lumsden.
Penza will be sidelined because of a serious arm injury.
“Jeff required surgery on a deep cut to his arm, on the point of the elbow,” Logue said.
“He was released from hospital this morning (Monday) but he’s going to be out for a while.”
Hull has been cleared of serious injury to his shoulder and arm but is expected to be out of action for at least a week.
“Initially it was thought he had broken his shoulder and possibly his arm but he’s just battered and bruised so he’s been very lucky,” the apprentice’s master Grant Allard said.
An inquiry into the fall has been adjourned.
Former jockey Paul Rowe, meanwhile, remains in a critical condition in Canberra Hospital following a trackwork fall last week.
Rowe suffered serious chest injuries after being kicked by a horse during an incident at Moruya on the NSW south coast.
He ruptured the left ventricle of his heart which caused a collapsed chamber and he underwent emergency surgery after he was airlifted to hospital.
“Paul is still critical but there are promising signs,” Logue said.
“He is communicating via whiteboard notes and the doctors have reduced his reliance on life support.”
