Jockey Freddy Tylicki is suing fellow jockey Graham Gibbons in the High Court following Tylicki suffering a life-changing injury when he fell during a race at Kempton Park racetrack on 31 October 2016, which he alleges was caused by Gibbons “taking him off track”.
After getting off the mount, Tylicki was trampled and partially paralysed, using a wheelchair regularly.
If his proceedings are successful, Tylicki’s lawyer claims that it is “worth millions of pounds” and will require an assessment of damages.
The court previously heard evidence from another rider in the race, Jim Crowley. He claimed in the weighing room that Mr Gibbons had a smell of alcohol in his breath, but under questioning he admitted that there were no signs that he was “affected.”
Gibbons had previously been banned for drunk driving four times and was suspended for “trying to give a urine sample from a young rider his own” in 2016.
A verdict is expected shortly.
