An inquiry into the race fall that brought down two runners in the Sydney Cup last month has concluded that neither jockey is to blame for the incident.

Kerrin McEvoy and Glyn Schofield were both injured after their mounts fell on the Heavy track at Randwick Racecourse on April 23.

McEvoy’s Tinseltown fell near the 700 metre mark of the race and Schofield was unable to avoid the troubled pair and subsequently fell along with his horse, Hawk Island.

Schofield broke his collarbone in the fall while McEvoy broke two of his ribs.

Both horses survived the fall completely unscathed.

The inquiry into the fall was held at Canterbury today, and concluded that the fall was completely unavoidable.

Chief Steward Ray Murrihy headed the inquiry team.

“We don’t believe there was any culpable riding on the part of any of the riders involved in the incident,” Mr Murrihy said.

“It’s really a combination of tiring horses and two horses that had running left in them.”

McEvoy is now hoping to resume light trackwork as of Saturday morning.

“I’m seeing the doctor this afternoon and hopefully I’ll get a clearance to ride trackwork on Saturday morning,” McEvoy said.

“I’ve been in the pool the last couple of days giving it a hitout.

“I’ll have a week of trackwork and then I’m hoping to ride down here in Sydney the following Saturday (May 28).”
