Davy Condon (Rider)

Issued by Dr Adrian McGoldrick, Senior Turf Club Medical Officer, on behalf of Davy Condon.

Davy Condon suffered a spinal injury in a fall during the Grand National at Aintree. This was on the background of a previous spinal concussion from which he had recovered fully and had been passed fit to ride by our Consultant Neurologist.

Davy was reviewed yesterday by Dr Brian Murray, Consultant Neurologist, on behalf of the Turf Club.

Dr Murray has recommended that Davy retire from horse riding, be it professional or recreational, due to the risk of further spinal injury.

Davy has been referred by Dr Murray for a Neurosurgical opinion as he has an ongoing disc lesion in his neck.

Davy has fully accepted the medical advice and will be liaising with the Irish Jockeys’ Trust with a view to future career options.
