Hollie Doyle sustained a broken elbow in the fall at Wolverhampton.
The spell on the sidelines is “frustrating” for the record-breaking rider.
After falling at Wolverhampton on Monday, Hollie Doyle broke her elbow and faces a lengthy absence.
At Dunstall Park, the record-breaking jockey was riding the 4-7 favorite The Perfect Crown, trained by Archie Watson, when her mount broke down on the home bend.
She went to a specialist on Tuesday to determine the extent of her injury while Doyle left the incident.
Although it is too soon to set a timetable for Doyle’s return, her husband and fellow rider Tom Marquand confirmed the injury on Wednesday.
Tom: “She has broken her elbow. We don’t really know how long she will be out for as she literally only had her MRIs last night.
“It is one of those fiddly things, as you could put a number on it and you’d be wrong every time anyway.
“To be honest, it is just a case of making sure she gets it right now, because you wouldn’t want to stop halfway through the summer. It is frustrating.”
Last year, Doyle had 151 winners and finished second to William Buick in the Flat jockeys’ championship, which takes place between May and October.
