Cory Parish escapes serious injury in Mondays fall
Cory Parish is set to make an immediate return to race riding after he escaped serious injury in a fall on Monday. Scans have revealed that the Caulfield Cup-winning rider suffered no fractures in his lower leg after an incident at Echuca where the 32-year-old was thrown from his mount Svaneke (Magnus) around 80 metres from the starting gates in race three. “I went straight over and then it ran over the top of me, on the worst part of the track, right on the outside, they don’t water there so it was a pretty hard part of the track,” the rider told Racing. com. Parish, who has only been back riding for nine months after a year off due to a back injury continued: “I’m just starting to get back in form again, and getting some rides after a year off, then I have this little hiccup, which is not ideal. My weight is sensational at the moment, walking around naturally at 51.5 kilograms, which is fantastic, the best I’ve ever been.”
