Brand Ambassador Rachael Blackmore is once again back in action and heads to Galway this weekend after three months without riding due to injury.
I’m very happy to say that I’ll be back riding this Saturday at Galway.
I’ve been on the sidelines for just over three months now, but my recovery has gone very well. I’m feeling good and ready to get back. I feel very lucky that surgeons John Rice and Adeel Memon were on hand after my fall and did a fantastic job mending me back together!
Since then, I’ve been doing physio in Santry with Enda King and working on my fitness with JP Tracey at Patric Fitness. They’ve both been so helpful.
On Saturday, I ride Balko des Flos in the W.B. Gavin & Co. Handicap Hurdle (15:37). He is having his first run since finishing second in the Aintree Grand National. He enjoyed it over there and ran an incredible race, but lucky for me there was one who just ran that bit better!
I’m looking forward to riding him, and hopefully, we can get his season off to a good start.
