Star South Australian jockey Raquel Clark is unsure if she will be allowed to get back into the saddle following her fall last month.
Raquel Clark suffered a terrible fall after the winning post aboard Goodgee who clipped the heels of another horse and fell onto Clark.
Clark was taken to hospital and sustained brain damage along with memory and hearing loss.
“I just went to yell that I was coming through (between horses) but by that time, I was at their heels and I clipped their heels,” Clark told Channel 10.
“After that, I can’t remember anything.”
Clark sustained brain damage from the fall, along with memory and hearing loss and is unable to drive a car.
“I did the accident on the Saturday and my memory started coming back (on) the Friday,” Clark said.
“I’m worried about my health. They said, ‘until you’re 100 per cent, you can’t go back (to riding)’ and they didn’t give me a timeframe on that.”
Clark’s biggest win in her relatively short career was aboard Dalasan in the Group Two Danehill Stakes at Flemington.
