Injured Trackwork Rider Update - Jack Cavanough (Scone, Weds)

Trackwork rider Jack Cavanough suffered a fall at Scone this morning (Wednesday 22nd July) after his mount stumbled. Racing NSW's Dr Duckworth reports Jack has possible head and neck injuries and will need scans on arrival to John Hunter Hospital after being airlifted.

[Update at 7:30pm on Monday 27th July]:
Dr. Duckworth reports that Jack was discharged from hospital today. He still has some signs of post concussion memory loss. Jack will need regular monitoring and follow up until he makes a full recovery.

[Update at 11am on Friday]: Dr. Duckworth reports that Jack is up walking and talking, and improving each day. He still has some slurred speech and some memory loss. It is a waiting game but he seems to be improving each day.

[Update at 11am on Thursday]: Jack has woken up this morning in hospital and is breathing on his own. He has some recollection of events and is now talking.

[Update at 4:45pm on Wednesday]: Dr. Duckworth reports that Jack had a CT scan of his head showing a small bleed but apparently this does not need any surgery. Jack is still intubated and they hope to slowly wake him up and take the tube out today or tomorrow. Dr Duckworth is still awaiting the results of Jack's neck scans to clear him of any neck fracture. Apparently the initial films didn't show any obvious fracture.
