Rafael on Brownie (FR) last year on Derby day
The news this morning was gloomy to say the least. Rafael Schistl has been in a car crash in Brazil and was reportedly in danger as far as anyone knew this morning.
Thankfully the news are now much better in the sense that he is no longer in danger, but of course still has injuries. They’re said to be a broken hand, nine broken ribs and possibly a broken leg as well. But compared to the alternative, I’m sure he’ll take that and as a jockey he is not stranger to getting over injuries.
All the best to Rafael with the recovery and feeling better!
