The 7lb claimer was knocked unconscious when she was unshipped from Our Pearl two furlongs from home in the opening mile-and-a-half maiden.

Kenny was airlifted to Cork University Hospital and underwent a brain scan.

Dr Adrian McGoldrick, senior medical officer for the Irish Turf Club, said: "Karen Kenny has suffered a small traumatic subdural haemorrhage and is currently being assessed.

"She was unconscious for about three minutes but she was semi-conscious when she left.

"She was able to respond to us and she knew she was in Tramore."

Dr McGoldrick continued: "She is much more stable now than she was when leaving here (Tramore).

"She will be observed overnight."
