WA jockey Natasha Faithfull fights for life after track fall



A super jockey WA fights for life after a horror fall in Albany on Saturday morning.

Natasha Faithfull suffered punctured lungs, broken ribs, a broken clavicle and a lacerated liver in the bad track fall.

The 25-year-old settled in Albany before being transported to Perth by the Royal Flying Doctors Service on Saturday afternoon.

"Apparently he was just coming back from the beach and fell with his horse over a sandbank," Corse and Wagering WA racing careers and trainer manager Ron Fleming said.

"The horse rolled over her and then jumped on her trying to get back on that is never good, she is very unlucky."

In a post on social media, Ms. Faithfull's mother said that 25-year-old's horse was scared before they rolled on a bank.

She was placed in intensive care, less than 24 hours after Friday night she rode a double winner in Albany.

Will arrive at the Royal Perth Hospital on Saturday evening

It is not the first time that Ms Faithfull has been wounded in a fall of the race.

After crashing onto the grass in the heavy fall, Faithfull put down her movements. She was quickly assisted by ambulance agents before being transferred to Kalgoorlie Heath Campus.

He remained under observation for the night and was fortunately released the next morning with a broken ankle.

Mrs. Faithfull is riding more than a decade after being taught by her mother when she was 13 years old.

He spoke earlier about his years of constant bullying as a teenager before finally finding his jockey call.
