Kill native Ruby Walsh has been stood down from racing at Cheltenham for the rest of today
Kildare jockey Ruby Walsh has been stood down from the rest of today’s racing at Cheltenham. It is suspected he has suffered a broken leg after a fall from Al Boum Photo in the 2.10pm RSA Novices Insurance Chase.
The jockey has been taken to hospital for an X Ray.
Patrick Mullins will replace him on Douvan in today’s big race, the Queen Mother Champion Chase.
Ruby returned to competitive racing just last Thursday, after he suffered a broken leg at Punchestown last November.
He had two winners at the opening day of Cheltenham, on Footpad in the Racing Post Arkle Challenge Trophy Novices' Chase, and on Benie des Dieux OLBG Mares' Hurdle.
