Parish hurt in Flemington fall

CAULFIELD Cup-winning rider Cory Parish was taken to hospital after falling at Flemington on Saturday.

Parish tumbled heavily after Sin To Win clipped heels soon after the field left the barrier in the Living Legend Efficient Handicap (2800m).

There were initial fears the field would have to be diverted around witches hats when it returned to the straight for the final stages.

But paramedics were able to move Parish inside the running rail.

Clearly shaken, Parish complained of lower back pain.

The Kiwi, who forged to prominence with a brilliant ride on Boom Time in last spring's Caulfield Cup, was taken to hospital for assessment.
