Leading rider injured in race fall

Friday night’s meeting at Cranbourne ended prematurely after a bad fall in the seventh race of the evening.

Leading jockey Jamie Mott was left with a broken leg after his mount (Alsvin) came down on the home turn.

The fall triggered a domino effect which saw Jason Maskiell on Allageri come down with John Allen (Grand Crown) and Dylan Dunn (Empire Liberty) dislodged from their mounts. 

Both Allen and Dunn were quickly on their feet, leaving Mott and Maskiell still on the track, requiring attention from the track paramedics.

Maskiell was taken to Dandenong Hospital complaining of ankle soreness while Dunn was taken to Melbourne's Epworth Hospital suffering a broken fibula and tibia.

He is expected to undergo surgery to repair the damage.

All four horses involved in the accident were captured, checked and cleared by vets of any serious injury.

Mott still managed to access social media en-route to hospital confirming his ride to Melbourne Hospital.

Stewards interviewed riders in the race, including Luke Currie and Zac Spain, as well as the jockeys involved, John Allen and Dylan Dunn before adjourning their inquiry into the fall. 

Race officials abandoned the final event of the evening due to the fall.
