Maguire in Hospital After Race Fall

Stroud jockey Jason Maguire has sustained multiple injuries in a fall during a race.

He fractured his sternum, broke two ribs and punctured a lung in the incident at Market Rasen on Sunday.

Maguire, who was taken to Lincoln Hospital, said it was unclear how long he would be out of action.

"I haven't thought about what comes next, but hopefully some time this week I will be transferred to a hospital near home where I can talk to my doctor and get a proper verdict," he said.
