Irish jockey seriously injured in race fall

Australian-based Irish jockey Damien Murphy is in critical condition in hospital and on life support after falling off his mount during a race in central New South Wales state.
Hospital officials said Sunday that the 23-year-old Murphy, who was injured in the race Friday at Wellington, also suffered a heart attack after the fall.
"He remains critical," a spokeswoman at Nepean Hospital said Sunday. "We are expecting his family."
Murphy, who has been in Australia for about 12 months, was reported to have fallen from his horse, Ajay's Luck, when it clipped the heels of another entrant. Ajay's Luck had to be destroyed after the accident.
