Injured Jockey Update - Kirk Matheson (Grafton, Tuesday)

Jockey Kirk Matheson was dislodged from his mount, Legal Loophole, at the 200m mark during race 4 at Grafton on Tuesday (20th March). Kirk was conscious after the fall and was complaining of pain to his chest and ribs. He was transported to Coffs Harbour Hospital for scans and treatment.

Update at 9am on Wednesday, 28th March 2018: Racing NSW's Dr Duckworth reports that Kirk was discharged from Coffs Harbour Hospital over the weekend and is doing reasonably well. He is back home with fractured ribs and a bruised liver and will be seen by his GP this week. Kirk is likely to be sidelined for at least another eight weeks.

Update at 9:30am on Wednesday, 21st March 2018: Kirk is in the intensive care unit at Coffs Harbour Hospital after scans last night revealed he suffered a laceration to his liver. He remains under observation following an operation to stop the bleeding. Kirk has also suffered a couple of broken ribs.

Update at 6:40pm on Tuesday, 20th March 2018: Racing NSW's Dr Tim Musgrove reports that he spoke with the Admitting Officer (Doctor) and reported Kirk is in a stable condition. Kirk suffered a right-sided chest injury, more likely soft tissue, but this will be followed up with CT scans to his neck, chest and abdomen. Dr Musgrove will liaise with Kirk and his family as results come to hand.
