Mizobe recovering after race fall

GYMPIE apprentice jockey Kazuki Mizobe is steadily improving after sustaining serious head injuries in a race fall at Ipswich last Friday.

Apprenticed to the Barry Gill stable, Desiree Gill said the Japanese jockey had emerged from an induced coma last Saturday and was out of intensive care.

Mizobe’s parents flew into Australia from Japan last Sunday to be with their son.

The apprentice jockey injuries are believed to have occurred when the horse he was riding fell near the winning post and rolled on him.

Mizobe has been on loan to Oakey trainer Pat Sexton and has been having a good run of success at Toowoomba in recent weeks.
