Narrow escape for star Katie in spectacular fall

JOCKEY Katie Walsh narrowly avoided serious injury after she was thrown from her horse at Punchestown.

The jump jockey twisted and turned in an acrobatic move, and somehow managed not to hit the hurdle as she fell from her horse, Sulu Sea.

This spectacular photograph of Katie, daughter of trainer Ted Walsh, was snapped at the last fence of the race.

Both horse and jockey were fine after the race.
