CHAMPION jockey Oisin Murphy was given emergency medical treatment after a terrifying pre-race incident at Salisbury.

Murphy was in the paddock on his mount Oasis Gift when the horse got loose and took off.

Totally out of control, Murphy was helpless as the horse bolted away and sent him flying through a rail.

The dramatic footage was shown on Racing TV, with emergency personnel rushing to Murphy’s side.

Racing TV host Lydia Hislop, who was trackside, said: “Oisin Murphy got to his feet and walked slowly into the emergency ambulance.

“He was within seconda attended to by medics at the racecourse, who were with him as he sat down.

“He was perhaps in shock for quite some time.

“He is now in the albulance and the horse he was due to ride, Oasis Gift, has been withdrawn.

“It was a horrible incident and really frightening for everyone involved.”

Sky Sports Racing host John Hunt tweeted: “Difficult to be sure of his condition but Oisin Murphy has walked to the ambulance which is now presumably heading to hospital.

“He was thrown into rigid railing around parade ring at Salisbury and initially treated for facial injury.

“Conscious and mobile though.”
