Moreira Injury Not Serious

Friday, 29th May 2015

Superstar jockey Joao Moreira is expected to be fit for Sunday's feature meeting in Hong Kong after suffering a back injury that ruled him out of most of Wednesday's meeting at Sha Tin, reports the South China Morning Post. Moreira tweaked his back when Sure Peace jumped awkwardly in the first race on the night, but the Brazilian pushed through the pain to claim his 122nd win of the season. After dismounting from the John Moore-trained runner, Moreira was stretchered to an ambulance and taken to hospital where scans cleared him of any serious injury. Moreira, who is booked to ride Helene Happy Star for Moore in the Gr1 Champions & Chater Cup on Sunday, suffered a suspected muscle strain and will be assessed by a club doctor before Sunday's meeting.
