New Zealand mourns the death of jockey

New Zealand mourns the death of jockey, Rebecca Black, resulting in a race fall at Gore on Sunday, on the South Island.

The fall occurred near the 700 metres mark, the Riverton based Black, riding Point Proven, when the unexpected happened, when Point Proven fell, and Misscattlecreek, ridden by Terry Mosely, also crashed, Moseley was not injured, however, his mount had to be humanely euthanized.

Black, 40, was the mother of three children; two are believed to have witnessed the tragic incident that claimed the life of their mother.

It was a sad day for all that are involved in racing, it just illustrates the risk that jockeys take riding in a packed field at 40 kilometres an hour.

Black had ridden 108 winners during her career; she was a well liked and popular figure among the southern racing fraternity.

The remainder of the Tapanui Racing Club fixture was called off after the tragic fall.
