Darren Jones will be farewelled in Tamworth on April 20

Popular NSW jockey Darren Jones will be remembered as a cherished husband, father and son after his death in a three-horse fall in the state’s north.

The 49-year-old – who fell at Warialda while riding race favourite Montague Clan on Saturday – will be farewelled in Tamworth on April 20.

“The tragic passing of Darren Jones as a result of a race fall at Warialda in NSW has been a tremendous loss to wife Sheridan, sons Jacob and William and to the NSW racing community,” the Australian Jockeys Association and National Jockeys Trust said in a joint statement.

NSW Jockeys Association vice President Tony Crisafi said Jones was “more like a friend to me” and that he had worked to improve jockey safety standards.

Two other riders were caught up in the fatal fall, with Melanie Bolwell suffering bleeding on the brain, and neck and ankle fractures, and Leanne Henry undergoing surgery for a broken collarbone.

Jones’ last win was on Maybegrey in Narromine on April 2.
