BOSSON SIDELINED

BOSSON SIDELINED

Leading jockey Opie Bosson won’t ride for at least a month after suffering concussion in a race fall at Te Rapa on Wednesday.

X-rays and scans cleared Bosson of any serious injury after he fell from the Jamie Richards-trained Cicciolina after clipping heels soon after the finish when the winner Cherry Lane was deemed to have shied at the winning post.

“I’m pretty sore, especially my sternum and shoulder, and I can’t remember any of it,” Bosson said.

Bosson, who has won six Group One races and the Karaka Million (1200m) this season, will now take a short break from riding and return in early July.
