Initial scans have revealed the extent of jockey Daniel Stackhouse’s injuries after he was airlifted from Kilmore Racecourse following a fall in the fourth event on Thursday.

Stackhouse suffered left and right rib fractures, a small liver bleed, and a small fracture to his pelvis after falling from the Matt Cumani-trained gelding Armansky.

Fellow jockey Tatum Bull posted an image of Stackhouse on Twitter outlining the extent of his injuries, although had a positive tone indicating that he was already looking forward to getting back in the saddle.

Dean Holland was also caught up in the incident at Kilmore coming off his mount, More Saturdays. After initially complaining of a leg issue, Holland was eventually cleared of serious injury and managed to take his ride in the last event aboard Kit And Caboodle, who finished down the track.

The ability to bounce back from the fall has been good news for Holland, who has still been able to make the trip to Hobart today for the Tasmanian Derby meeting. The Victorian hoop has a book of six rides, including the John Blacker-trained Alpine Affair in the Derby.

Holland also has a Group 1 ride booked aboard outsider Just Folk in the C.F. Orr Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.
