David Maxwell taken to hospital following Wetherby fall

Amateur rider David Maxwell was taken to hospital for further assessment after being knocked unconscious in a heavy fall at Wetherby.

Maxwell was partnering the Philip Hobbs-trained Zizaneur, who he also owns, in the 100% Racing TV Profits Back To Racing Handicap Chase when he was unseated three fences from the finish.

Soon after hitting the ground, Maxwell appeared to receive a kick from another horse and Wetherby’s clerk of the course Jonjo Sanderson confirmed he had been knocked out.

Sanderson said: “David has been taken straight to the LGI (Leeds General Infirmary).”
