Top Tasmanian reinsman Rohan Hadley is likely to be out of the sulky for at least two months as a result of a race fall in Launceston on Sunday night.

Hadley crashed heavily to the track when the hors he was driving fell as a result of a horse he was following choked down in the opening race on the mammoth 11-event card.

Hadley was aboard the Shelley Barnes-trained My Koda Jasper and was travelling well when the horse ahead Archie Rebel from the Kay Tindale stable in Victoria appeared to choke down, break gate and fell in the path of Hadley's horse.

Hadley was taken to Launcestongener6alHospital where he was diagnosed with a broken collarbone.

Victorian reinsman David Murphy the driver of Archie Rebel suffered only minor bruising and some minor lacerations but he was lucky to escape so lightly as he was catapulted from the cart and somersaulted over the inside safety rail.

Both horses escaped with minor abrasions.

Another of Tindale's team, two-year-old Justa Country Boy fell at almost the same spot (100 metres from the winning post) in the first two-year-old race of the season he Debutante an that horse also escaped without any serious injury.
