Johnson sidelined by injury

Danielle Johnson will again be missing from the riding ranks for a while after suffering a further injury.

The Cambridge-based jockey has suffered a slight crack to her collarbone.

‘’She’ll be off for a month,’’ her partner, trainer Stephen Marsh, said.

‘’It’s minor, but the doctors are airing on the side of caution after the other injury she had to it.’’

Johnson, who has a career tally of 838 wins, spent the remainder of last season on the sidelines after suffering three fractures to her collarbone following a fall at Ruakaka in mid-November.

She has ridden 16 winners this season, the latest being on the Marsh-trained Charlie Awesome at Timaru on October 11.
