Jockey Tye Angland remains in a serious but stable condition in intensive care in Hong Kong’s Prince Of Wales Hospital with the full extent of his injuries still to be determined.
Angland was injured when his mount stumbled out of the barriers in a race at Sha Tin last Sunday.
The Hong Kong Jockey Club has issued a statement on Friday on behalf of Angland’s wife Erin who is at his bedside.
“Firstly we would like to thank everyone for their concern and messages of support. We are issuing this release so that there are no misconceptions on Tye’s condition,” the statement said.
“As you are aware Tye had a fall at Sha Tin, Hong Kong on Sunday 25 November following which he remained conscious throughout.
“He remains in the intensive care unit in a serious but stable condition at The Prince of Wales Hospital, Hong Kong.
“Whilst the full extent of his injuries are still unknown, we are thankfully able to report there has been no neurological damage.
“We ask for privacy, respect and patience during this time and will be forthcoming with information as we receive it.
“Tye’s wellbeing is paramount and rest is his first priority. We understand that many people will be in Hong Kong next week for HKIR but we would ask for our privacy during this difficult time.
“We have not told our three young children of Tye’s condition and respectfully ask that they be kept unaware of what has happened.
“We have a long and difficult road ahead but what I do know is that Tye is a very strong and determined person and we will fight this together as a family. I do not intend to release anything further at this time.”
