Jenny Duggan survives horror fall

Gosford jockey, Jenny Duggan, is recovering in John Hunter Hospital after a horror fall during the Scone Cup Race Day on May 15.

Duggan was riding in the final race of the day when her mount Steamboat Sally fell in the home straight.

She was airlifted to John Hunter Hospital in a serious condition, suffering multiple injuries including a fractured skull, fractured right shoulder, slight bruising of the brain, concussion and a broken nose.

Despite that, she remains in good spirits, taking to social media to thank well wishers for their ongoing support.

Veteran jockey Robert Thomson was also injured in the fall.

“I’m feeling very lucky to be writing this,” Duggan posted on Facebook.

“We are still working out what is happening with my shoulder.”

Duggan is a successful rider on the NSW bush racing scene riding 27 winners last season and another 14 winners so far this season including her latest win on Crackneck at Coffs Harbour on May 8.
