Jockey taken to hospital after accident at Fakenham
A jockey has taken to hospital after being thrown from her horse at a Norfolk race course.
Champion lady amateur rider Isabel Tompsett has been taken to Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital following a horrible fall at Fakenham.
Tompsett was riding Leopold for trainer David Thompson in the Aylsham Show - Bank Holiday 29th August Lady Amateur Riders' Handicap Hurdle when she crashed out at the third flight.
She was unconscious and though and air ambulance was called, she was taken to hospital in a normal ambulance.
'At the minute she is stable and breathing of her own accord,' said Thompson.
'They called an air ambulance but in the end they thought she was well enough to leave in a normal one to Norwich hospital.
'It's a very worrying time.'
