Karen Kenny was airlifted to hospital after the jockey suffered a bad fall at Tramore.

The 7lb claimer parted company with Our Pearl two furlongs from home in a mile-and-a-half maiden.

Tramore clerk of the course Paddy Graffin said: "She is semi-conscious.

"We think she is OK but she got a knock on the head and just to be sure she is going to be airlifted to hospital."

Chris Hayes also fell from Columbanus earlier in the race but he returned to the weighing room unscathed.
