Injured Trainer Update - Gordon Yorke

UPDATE 12th December 9:32am - Trainer Gordon Yorke is still recovering at home following a trackwork incident at Grafton on 4th December. Gordon said that it could be a long process for his ear to heal after being bitten by a horse and knocked to the ground.

He will continue to seek treatment from his G.P. and stitches are expected to remain in his ear for 2 to 3 weeks.

Gordon said that he also aggravated a previous shoulder injury and will seek an MRI scan on that possibly this week

Racehorse trainer Gordon Yorke was hospitalised following a morning trackwork incident at Grafton on Monday December 4th. While saddling, Gordon was adjusting gear on one of his horses when it swung around and bit him on the ear. The force of the swing also knocked him over, injuring his shoulder, back and hips.

Gordon sought treatment at Coffs Harbour hospital later in the day and was admitted by Doctors. He since underwent plastic surgery on his ear on Tuesday.

“I didn’t think the injury was that bad until I was told on Monday that there was a chunk of my ear missing,” Gordon said. “The surgery went well but the Doctors have said that it is all cartilage damage which may be difficult to heal. I’ll just have to be very careful with it.”

Gordon was discharged from hospital yesterday and is now resting at home on antibiotics.  He is also suffering general soreness to his shoulder and back.
