Katie Walsh ‘too sore’ to ride at Limerick after heavy fall

Ashley Iveson

KATIE Walsh has given up her one ride at Limerick this afternoon following her crunching fall at the track yesterday.

The leading amateur rider was feared to have suffered a shoulder injury when Pocketfullapennies came down at the seventh-last fence in the Earl of Harrington Memorial Maiden Hunters Chase.

Although she later tweeted she was "fine, just sore", she will not be partnering the Prunella Dobbs-trained favourite Our Cobajay in today's Limerick bumper.

Dobbs said: "It was an awful fall. I believe she's fine, but she is unable to take the ride today unfortunately."
