APPRENTICE O'Brien White, one of four riders to fall during the final race on last Saturday's 10-race programme, had to endure another tumble from the saddle, this time on Wednesday morning during the exercise period.

Despite the setbacks and the obvious pain caused by the two spills, White is set to resume riding tomorrow. After being hospitalised due to muscle pains on Saturday, he has secured five rides on the 11-race card.

"I feel good to be back in the saddle after that horrible fall. It is just a wonderful feeling. The muscles in my lower back were sore that is all, no major injuries. I am OK," the young apprentice said.

As for his second mishap, White said: "I have been cleared to ride again and I worked horses on Tuesday morning and felt no discomfort. I fell from a horse on Wednesday but it was nothing serious as I am getting back my balance."

The other riders to fall on Saturday were Oneil Mullings, Aaron Chatrie and Delroy Beharie. Chatrie and Beharie were treated and sent home. Mullings is suffering from a broken right leg and is currently wearing a cast.
