Killoran fine after nasty fall

Apprentice Sophie Killoran emerged unscathed after a spectacular fall in the closing race at Salisbury.

The 20-year-old was thrown to the ground three furlongs out after the saddle slipped on her mount Dylan's Centenary, doing cartwheels as she hit the turf.

Much to the relief of all looking on, she was quickly to her feet and returned to the weighing room with a smile on her face.

In an unrelated incident half a furlong down the track, Adam McLean came to grief after Permsiri clipped heels with La Napoule, resulting in a broken collarbone.

Clerk of the course Jeremy Martin said: "Sophie got up and she's fine. The doctor believes Adam had a fractured collarbone.

"They were two rather nasty incidents and completely separate, just seconds apart. The young man will be off for while, but thankfully it's not too serious and nothing more."
