Osborne, the daughter of trainer Jamie Osborne, had earlier ridden a winner on the card.

But three races later the 7lbs claimer fell from six-year-old Zeyzoun, trained by Alexandra Dunn.

Witnesses on course called it the worst fall they had ever seen in a Flat race.

Windsor clerk of the course, Sophie Candy, said: “She’s been taken to hospital for further investigation.

“She was conscious.”

The stewards held an inquiry into the incident and suspended 5lb claimer Marco Ghiani for 10 days for careless riding.

The official report read: “Ghiani was suspended for 10 days for careless riding as he had manoeuvred right-handed towards the rail when insufficiently clear, causing Zeyzoun to clip heels and unseat Osborne.”

Osborne had been successful on the 11-year-old Pettochside for trainer John Bridger in the Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Classifield Claiming Stakes earlier on the card.

The next races on the card were delayed as Osborne received treatment, but the remainder of the races after a short period.
