Jamie Codd injured in Limerick fall

JAMIE CODD enjoyed three winners at Farmaclaffey, Co. Armagh, today.

Mayglass-born jockey Jamie Codd is expected to be out of action for a month after suffering a partially collapsed lung in a bad fall at the third flight in a handicap hurdle aboard Triumph Hurdle winner Farclas at Limerick on Friday.
Dr Jennifer Pugh, chief medical officer for the Irish Turf Club, said: “Jamie suffered a partially collapsed lung and is due for a scan later today (Saturday), but we’d expect him to be discharged afterwards. He’s looking at about one month on the sidelines.”
Another Wexford jockey in the wars at Limerick was Sean O’Keeffe, Taghmon, who suffered a concussion when Liz Doyle’s Crafty Power came down two from home in the novice chase.
O’Keeffe had a winner for Jessica Harrington on Jetez at Leopardstown on Thursday and was due to ride Press Conference for the same trainer, but the injury ruled him out. There was more tough luck as Press Conference went on to win the maiden hurdle.
There were two Wexford winners on yesterday’s Limerick card. Jonathan Moore, Adamstown, won the maiden hurdle on Melly and Me, (5/4 fav.) for Noel Meade, and Barry O’Neill won the bumper on Cobbler’s Way, (5/1), for Waterford trainer Henry de Bromhead.
