Irish jockey Bryan Cooper walks away unharmed after getting trampled by horse

The incident occurred at Limerick yesterday.

IRISH JOCKEY BRYAN Cooper somehow managed to avoid serious injury after an incident at Limerick yesterday.

The Kerryman had a nasty fall from Unic De Bersy in the 4.55 before being trampled on by the winner Twiss’s Hill.

Luckily, he walked away unharmed and will be fine for next week’s Cheltenham Gold Cup where he will have the pick of Michael O’Leary’s Gigginstown House Stud.
