Former champion jockey Sir Anthony McCoy has sent his best wishes to Frederik Tylicki as the Group One-winning rider remains in hospital following the four-horse pile-up at Kempton on Monday.
Frederik Tylicki remains in hospital following Monday's fall
Tylicki was involved along with newly-crowned champion Flat jockey Jim Crowley, Ted Durcan and Steve Drowne.
Durcan and Drowne walked away from the incident, although the former suffered a broken ankle, but Tylicki and Crowley were taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting with suspected spinal injuries.
Tylicki only recently rode the biggest wins of his career on James Fanshawe's Speedy Boarding, who was successful in both the Prix Jean Romanet and the Prix de l'Opera.
McCoy, who retired from the saddle in April last year having won 20 National Hunt championships, is now president of the Injured Jockeys Fund and said: "I'm sure every racing enthusiast will want to join me in wishing Freddy Tylicki a speedy recovery after the shocking accident at Kempton this week.
"The other jockeys involved, Jim Crowley, Steve Drowne and Ted Durcan, were incredibly lucky to have escaped without serious injury and we are all thinking of Freddy.
"Our thoughts are with him, his sister Madeleine and mother Irene who have expressed their enormous gratitude for all the good wishes and support they have received.
"Our almoner Lucy is constantly with them at the hospital during this very harrowing time as they await further news on Freddy's condition.
"I can't think of any other sport that has such a contrast of highs and lows."
