Raquel Clark heads home

Raquel Clark - Homeward bound

Adelaide jockey Raquel Clark is returning home to Tasmania to spend time with family while she recovers from her injuries sustained from a recent fall.

On November 9, the 26-year-old rider was dislodged from her mount (Goodgee) after it clipped the heels of another runner, past the winning post.

Clark was unconscious for a time but after receiving medical treatment by paramedics at the track, she regained consciousness and was then transferred to Royal Adelaide Hospital for further treatment. 

She suffered severe bruising and a deflated lung from the fall.



On Monday, Clark met with her specialist who gave her the green light to travel back home where she will spend some time recovering from the fall.

Due to the deflated lung she suffered, Clark is unable to fly, so she will travel by road to Melbourne, then from there, she will join the Spirit Of Tasmania to cross the Bass Strait.

Once she returns to Adelaide, her rehabilitation will then commence and it is hoped that sometime early in the New Year the medical staff treating her will have a more accurate idea of when she can return to the track.
