Harry Haynes hopes to return to the saddle on Wednesday at Cartmel after escaping serious injury in a fall at the same course on Monday.

The National Hunt jockey was thought to have damaged a rib when unseated from Sinnamara at the second flight in the mares’ novices’ selling hurdle.

However, he was allowed home after being checked out at Furness General Hospital and hopes to get back in the saddle at the Cumbrian venue.

“He’s fine and he’ll be back on Wednesday. He texted’me to say he’s OK. It was nothing serious,” said his agent Richard Hale.


Gary Rutherford was involved in another incident at the track on the same day but isn’t expected to be a long-term absentee from the saddle.

The conditional jockey, who is based with Jedburgh trainer Harriet Graham, was unseated from Glorybelucky in the early stages of the Scott Partnership Supports Calvert Trust Mares’ Novices’ Selling Hurdle and was believed to have been concussed.

Graham’s husband and assistant trainer Robert said: “He’s fine and back with us.

“I think he’ll be signed off for a bit, so he won’t be riding again for a little while, but he never lost consciousness.”
