This is one of the most spectacular horse racing falls we've ever seen

Thankfully jockey Lewis Ferguson is ok.

THIS JUST HAPPENED during racing at Wincanton.

Jockey Lewis Ferguson was riding the 4/7 favourite Merrion Square and looked set to win the 4.20 when the horse veered badly at the last fence.

Ferguson was unseated just as the horse prepared to jump but the jockey’s momentum carried him straight through the fence with a bone-aching somersault.

Fortunately he was able to walk away — but that’s surely going to hurt in the morning.
