Watch horrifying moment jockey SCREAMS in agony after getting kicked in bum by horse | The Sun
THIS is the horrifying moment jockey Jody McGarvey screams in agony after getting kicked in the bum by a horse.
McGarvey was about to hop aboard the appropriately-named Emotional Damage at Naas on Thursday.
But the five-year-old mare had other ideas and lashed out with her hind leg in the parade ring.
The horse's hoof clattered into McGarvey's bottom and he hobbled away yelping in pain.
Jockeys are made of strong stuff though and the Irish rider recovered in time to race the Gordon Elliott-trained runner.
But there was to be no happy ending as the pair could only manage ninth in the 2m½f maiden hurdle, won by 6-4 fav Troubled Times.
A clip of the incident was put on Twitter by ITV Racing pundit Kevin Blake.
McGarvey, a multiple Grade 1-winning jockey, was one of those poking fun at his misfortune.
