Central Districts jockey Leah Hemi will sit out a decent chunk of the winter after she broke her leg at Hastings yesterday.
Returning to scale after the seventh race, Hemi’s mount Eisenhower shied and dislodged her.
“It was really innocuous. He’s such a quiet horse and I was just too complacent,” Hemi said.
“We were on our way back to the birdcage and the horse shied at something and I came off.
“I’m probably out for six to eight weeks. I go to the fracture clinic next week. I’m in a moon boot at the moment but I don’t think it’s too bad. I’m just annoyed I’m going to be out for the next few weeks.”
