Horse racing has been rocked by another serious accident with jockey Teo Nugent taken to hospital following a horror fall at The Valley on Saturday.
Nugent’s mount Florescent Star appeared to get clipped and nosedived into the turf when rounding the bend during the 1200m Abell Stakes.

Florescent Star was euthanised following the incident.
Nugent was reportedly in and out of consciousness before been taken by ambulance to the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
Racing Victoria later said the rising jockey was chatting to medical staff and moving his limbs.
The incident delayed the running of the All-Star Mile.
Tributes came in for the horse with their trainers Amy and Ash Yargi left devastated.
It’s the third serious fall in as many weeks with Nugent the fourth jockey to end up in hospital.
Star jockeys Jamie Kah and Craig Williams were both taken to hospital after sickening fall at Flemington last weekend.
Kah spent two days under heavy sedation, but is recovering well and was “awake and speaking” during the week.
Williams suffered a fractured collarbone, broken ribs, a fractured finger and sustained a concussion in the horrific chaos, but was discharged from hospital on Sunday night.
And the week before, Ethan Brown required surgery after suffering internal bleeding following a fall during the Australian Guineas at Flemington.
