Jimmy Quinn is facing a spell on the sidelines after fracturing his hip when kicked by his intended mount, Richard Rowe’s newcomer Dilly The Pink, before the six-furlong novice stakes at Lingfield on Saturday.
The 52-year-old veteran of the weighing-room is not setting a target for his return to the saddle, but will be receiving treatment at Peter O’Sullevan House in Newmarket to aid his recovery.
“I’m a bit stiff and sore. It comes with the job,” said Quinn.
“I’ve got a fracture at the top of my hip, my pelvis, on the waistline. I’m mobile and I’m able to get about slowly.
Unfortunately Jimmy Quinn has suffered a fractured hip resulting from a kick from his intended mount at Lingfield on Saturday. Only 24 hours earlier Jimmy rode a double and so nearly a treble.

“It broke the skin and I’ve got some stitches in there.
“It’s just rest I need and I’ve spoken to Dr Jerry Hill (the British Horseracing Authority’s chief medical adviser). He wants me to go to Peter O’Sullevan House. There’s a big team of physios there. You’ve all the facilities and everything you need to help you.
“I don’t know when I’ll be back. We’ll see. I was on a good run in the last week. They were all running well – that’s the positive side of the job.”
