Beadman Out Of Melb Rides After HK Injury
Meanwhile top Australian jockey Darren Beadman is out of contention to ride at Melbourne's immediate feature meetings, after being thrown from 1st starter Johnson during a pre-race parade at Sha Tin in Hong Kong & hospitalised with "a suspected fractured coccyx & vertebra", reported The South China Morning Post. Beadman told the newspaper: "The good news is that the bones are not displaced, just cracked. It's uncomfortable, but hopefully I will be out of hospital soon & I'll know a lot more then."
