Champion British jockey Jim Crowley and fellow rider Freddie Tylicki have been taken to hospital with suspected spinal injuries following a serious incident at Kempton.
The accident happened as the field rounded the home turn in a maiden on Monday when Tylicki’s mount and another came down.
Crowley was immediately behind and was brought down, as were Steve Drowne and Ted Durcan.
Both Drowne and Durcan walked back to the weighing room but Tylicki and Crowley were attended to on the track for some time before being taken to the major trauma unit at a nearby hospital.
“Both jockeys have gone to St George’s in Tooting for further investigation,” clerk of the course Barney Clifford told Racing UK.
“Freddy Tylicki was airlifted and Jim Crowley has gone by road ambulance.
“They both are on spinal boards.”
The rest of the program was abandoned.
