Clenton to have surgery on collarbone

Samantha Clenton has come off the worst of four apprentice jockeys taken to hospital after a multiple-horse fall at Taree.

Clenton spent Monday night in Port Macquarie Hospital with a broken collarbone.

She will come to Sydney where Racing NSW’s doctor David Duckworth will operate on the collarbone on Wednesday.

Clenton also has soft tissue damage to her back which is expected to settle down over the next few weeks.

Kaylee Kirkwood was discharged from the same hospital on Monday night after having stitches in a leg wound. She was cleared of any fractures.

Jackson Murphy was taken to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle where he was cleared of fractures but sustained bruising to his spleen and lungs.

Nyssa Burrells also appears to have escaped without any broken bones.

Earlier this month, Clenton celebrated her biggest win aboard Clearly Innocent in the Listed Luskin Star Stakes at the Scone carnival.
