    Good news: Top SA jockey Lyle Hewitson back ‘home’ after HORROR fall

    Multiple South African jockey champion Lyle Hewitson has returned ‘home’ following a dreadful accident in Hong Kong last Sunday.

    FOR THE LATEST HORSERACING NEWS PLEASE VISIT THE SOUTH AFRICAN WEBSITE

    During the running of the Grade 1 Longines Hong Kong Sprint at Sha Tin, Hewitson and three colleagues suffered a fall which led to two horses being euthanised.

    After CT scan results, doctors moved Lyle Hewitson to a General Ward and then to the Hong Kong Jockey Club Hospital.

    He has now returned to his Hong Kong home.

    Hewitson, 24, took to Facebook to write: “Beyond blessed and very lucky to be in the state I am considering the magnitude of the incident “It is great to have gone from ICU, to hospital ward to home in just a few days!“Overwhelmed by all the messages of support, prayers and visits – certainly reminds me of the amazing people I have in my life “Now for the road to recovery and I promise to be back better, stronger and as soon as is realistic #carpediem“

    LYLE HEWITSON ‘DOESN’T RECALL WHAT HAPPENED’

    Hewitson, who is a three-time SA champion, reportedly doesn’t recall what happened, but “feels very sad for the horses and the others that fell”.

    The incident, in the fifth race on Hong Kong’s biggest day of racing, came as Hewitson’s mount Amazing Star broke down as the field turned to enter the home straight in the 1 200 metre (six furlongs) contest.

    Gallopers Lucky Patch, ridden by Zac Purton, Naboo Attack under Karis Teetan and Pixie Knight with Yuichi Fukunaga on board were caught in the melee and sent sprawling in distressing scenes.

    Sadly, Amazing Star and Naboo Attack both had to be euthanised humanely as a result of their injuries.
