Leading South Island apprentice jockey, Ashley Frye, has been flown to hospital following a race fall at Ashburton this afternoon.

Frye, who swept all before her in her debut season in the saddle last year to finish as leading apprentice in the Mainland, was dislodged shortly after the start of race when her mount, Zuleika, appeared to stumble out of the gates before running 200 metres and then crashing to the deck.

Frye was thrown from the saddle and it is understood her helmet was dislodged upon making contact with the ground and she was she still unconscious when taken to Ashburton Hospital 10 minutes later.

Frye has since been transported from Ashburton to Christchurch Hospital by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
