Jockey Rachael Blackmore fell in Killarney on Friday and injured her ankle and hip. She was in good spirits after the operation.
The national champion driver who had won two races on the fifth and final day of the conference was injured when the favorite Merry Poppins fell into the obstacle course.
The 32-year-old man was taken care of by medical staff for nearly half an hour before being transferred to an ambulance.
Jennifer Pugh, the senior medical officer of the Irish Horse Racing Regulatory Commission, released an update on Saturday morning, which read as follows: “Rachael Blackmore fell in Killarney on Friday night Later, his ankle and hip were injured.
“She had the operation overnight and she was in good spirits this morning.”
Blackmore won the national championship at Minella Times in April, becoming the first female driver to win the national championship.
In March, Blackmore became the first woman to win a championship hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, riding on the Honeysuckle, and her six winners at the conference saw her crowned as the leading jockey.
