BOSSON CONCUSSED

BOSSON CONCUSSED

Champion jockey Opie Bosson was taken to hospital complaining of a sore shoulder and symptoms of concussion following a fall at Te Rapa yesterday.

The incident occurred just after Bosson’s mount Cicciolina had crossed the line in third place behind $56-outsider Cherry Lane in the Fairview Motors 1400 metres.

Bosson lay prone on the track near the outside fence for several minutes before being stretchered to the ambulance and taken to hospital in a conscious state.
