Walker Confident of Return

Friday, 21st April 2017

Jockey Michael Walker has revealed he is inching closer to a return to the saddle, reports racing.com. Walker underwent surgery earlier this year after an episode at Mooney Valley in which he had to be helped from a horse because of severe lower back pain. "I went and saw Dr Zimmerman on Wednesday and he is confident I will be back and that has given me confidence," Walker said. "We are not too sure when that will be, I feel good, I feel like I could get back in the saddle now but I've got to take my time and complete my rehabilitation.” He added: “I'm not going to rush it. If it is the spring, then great. If I need longer, I'll do what it takes."
