Racing.com understands the horse the 38-year-old was riding collapsed. Walker, who was drifting in and out of consciousness,  was treated for about an hour before being airlifted to the Alfred Hospital.

The fall comes 15 months after rupturing his ACL and requiring a full knee reconstruction at the same course which saw him out of the saddle for a year.


Racenet: Group 1 jockey Michael Walker had to be airlifted to hospital after falling at Pakenham jumpouts on Tuesday morning.

The Victorian Jockeys Association confirmed the talented hoop had been injured in a fall and was being attended to by medical personnel on track.

It's understood Walker was falling in and out of consciousness on track before a decision was made to transport the jockey to hospital.

Walker only returned to the saddle in May after spending more than a year on the sidelines with a leg injury that also required the hoop to surgery on an torn ACL. His manager Liam Prior said;

“He has been airlifted to hospital and medical specialists have placed him in an induced coma to help stabilise him.”

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

Going back to breeding sound racehorses, and not trying to patch up crocks would help the jockeys cause.

Champion Kiwi jockey Michael Walker remains in an induced coma 24 hours after a fall at Pakenham jumpouts on Tuesday morning.

Walker’s condition remains serious but stable after initial scans cleared the jockey of spinal and internal injuries.

Doctors are dealing with a brain trauma.

The Victorian Jockeys’ Association CEO Matt Hyland told News Corp that doctors at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne plan to reduce Walker’s sedation on Wednesday.

“As of last night, the plan was for the doctors to start to reduce the sedation over the next 24 hours,” Hyland said.

“Michael suffered a very heavy concussion, so the fact they are slowly bringing him out of sedation is positive.”

Walker’s manager Liam Prior told News Corp that Walker’s family has requested privacy until Walker’s injuries have been fully identified.

“Out of respect to the family, I won’t be making any further statements until we know the full extent of Michael’s injuries,” Prior said.
