JOCKEY George Chaloner is set for a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a suspected fractured vertebra and broken foot in a fall at Newcastle on Wednesday night.

Chaloner was unseated from Woodacre when the ten-year-old was fatally injury in the closing stages of the 1m4½f handicap and was taken to hospital for checks.

Writing on Twitter, Chaloner said: "Thanks for all the kind messages. Getting settled in [at] Newcastle Hospital for a day or two. [Have a] suspected fractured T8 [vertebra] and a broken foot."

Chaloner rode 18 winners last year and was having his first ride of 2017 when unseating from Woodacre.

He enjoyed a highly successful 2014 with wins in the Wokingham and Northumberland Plate before breaking his foot and ankle in an accident in late 2015.
