Jockey Comeback


Story Details

Amy Herman is the champion Adelaide jockey who's fought her way back from a life-threatening fall. But now, they're refusing to let her race again.

Below is the statement Today Tonight received from Thoroughbred Racing SA:
"Thoroughbred Racing SA is committed to the safety of all participants, none more so than our riders. We are keen to see Amy return to race riding and are working closely with her rehabilitation officers for this to occur via a graduated return to track work and race riding, the terms and conditions of which Amy agreed to recently.

TRSA understands Amy's frustration and her determination to return to race riding; however race riding does have its risks and we take both a responsible and deliberately conservative approach when considering the safety of all participants."
