Jockey Andrew Adkins has been taken to Westmead Hospital following a sickening fall that has marred the opening race at Rosehill.

Adkins was aboard the Danny Williams-trained Hot ‘N’ Hazy who appeared to run out of room in the straight and crashed to the turf.

The colt, who Williams this week rated his best horse in a decade, was being treated by vets as he lay on the Rosehill turf, delaying the start of the second race.

Adkins was attended to by paramedics and racing officials confirmed he had regained consciousness and was talking to medical staff.

He was transported to Westmead Hospital with a suspected fractured leg and possible injuries to several ribs and his collarbone.

Saturday’s Sky Racing Active Handicap (1200m) was was won by the Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Smart Image, who remains unbeaten from two starts.
