Top jockey Jamie Spencer suffers injury scare after Newmarket gallops fall

TOP jock Jamie Spencer could miss the start of the Flat season after a gallops fall.

He is waiting to hear back on a hip injury that could require surgery after he fell while riding work for Newmarket trainer David Simcock.

Spencer's mount slipped and unshipped his Classic-winning rider, who was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for treatment.

His agent Niall Hannity said: "He was riding out for David Simcock when his horse just slipped. It wasn't a serious fall, but he just landed awkwardly and was taken to Addenbrooke's.

"He has a hip injury and they're not sure whether he will require surgery yet.

"I've spoken to him and he's in good spirits, although he's in a fair bit of pain, but he'll be fine."

Spencer had been in good form on the all-weather before racing was halted in Britain, recording five victories from just 17 rides.
