The career-ending accident sustained by jockey Tye Angland is widely known in the racing industry.
Now wheelchair-bound, Tye has demonstrated great resilience and a determination to make the best of his situation.
Tye [pictured] recently started a charity, Team Tye Foundation, to support other racing industry participants who have been left with a disability through their involvement.
The charity was chosen by Godolphin for their runner Collette in The Iron Jack Golden Eagle and she duly won, giving Team Tye Foundation its first sizeable cheque.
NSW Racehorse Owners’ Association is supporting the charity on Villiers Day (Saturday 12 December) at their Christmas Luncheon in the Champagne Bar overlooking the track, where Tye will be a special guest on the day.

The function, which features a 3-course plated lunch and all-day beverage package, is open to all.
