Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Ger­man jockey Freddy Tylicki, paral­ysed in a hor­rific four horse pile-up al­most two months ago, left hospi­tal yes­ter­day. The 30year-old, who is based in Eng­land and had two Group One wins in a break­through sea­son in 2016, tweeted it was a red let­ter day for him. “I’ve been wait­ing on this day for a long time and it’s fi­nally come #nextchap­ter #keep­fight­ing,” tweeted Tylicki, who will now un­dergo re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion at a spinal unit in Lon­don. Tylicki also thanked his fam­ily and the rac­ing com­mu­nity-who spurred on by rac­ing jour­nal­ist Matt Chap­man­raised over £330,000 ($407,000, 392,000 eu­ros) to help him. Tylicki, son of a three-time Ger­man cham­pion jockey, ad­mit­ted in mid-Novem­ber he was strug­gling to come to terms with the fact he was paral­ysed from the waist down. “Strug­gling and fight­ing !!!! (with a gloomy faced icon) Thank you ev­ery sin­gle one for all the sup­port! Here is to a long road in front of me! Much love ev­ery­one! (heart icon).”Tylicki suf­fered his life chang­ing in­jury at the end of Oc­to­ber at Kempton Park, south­west of Lon­don. —AFP
