25/05/02 Short Taken to Hospital After Valley Tumble
Veteran Victorian jockey Dale Short seems to have escapen any serious injury despite being taken to hospital after a fall at Moonee Valley in Melbourne this afternoon.

Short has taken by ambulance to the Royal Melbourne Hospital after complaining of back soreness, but reports later in the afternoon cleared the hoop of serious injury.

The news wasn't so good for Short's mount in the Brendan McCarthy Handicap, the Ken Keys trained galloper Hidden Clause. The gelding had to be put down after suffering fatal injuries approaching the home turn.

Chief Steward Des Gleeson said an inquiry into the fall will be conducted at a later date. Gleeson said, as the film also indicated, there was some tightening at the point of the incident.

Some evidence was taken this afternoon from three jockeys who were riding in the race.
