Peter Robl Out Of Action For A Month After Horror Fall

Peter Robl is set to miss the better part of a month after falling at Scone racecourse yesterday.

The Sydney-based jockey fell from his mount, In My Image, just after the start.

In My Image began bucking after her saddle slipped, which resulted in Robl being thrown into the air.

While he was originally concerned about spine damage, he has since been cleared of any breaks or fractures.

“I told the ambulance bloke I was in trouble, and then my toes began to burn in my boots,” Robl said.

“The ambo said, ‘the burning in the toes is the best thing that could happen to you’.

“The saddle slipped as soon as we jumped, and after five or six strides, she began to buck.

“I gave myself a ‘one out of 10’ for my landing.

“I reckon I’ve spent too much time in the city because when I was in the bush, I would have taken control of a bucking horse like that.

“I wish I could get back on her next week, just to show her who’s boss. But I’ll be out now for two to three weeks.”

In My Image’s trainer, David Vandyke, admitted he was stunned by yesterday’s turn of events.

“When he went up I thought he was going to come down on his feet and army roll,” Vandyke said.

“We were all in shock. It wasn’t until I got into the stewards room I heard a helicopter was coming for him.”

Robl was due to ride six horses at Royal Randwick tomorrow, including Armageddon On It in the $250,000 Inglis Classic feature.
