Grand National winning jockey Ryan Mania has been released from hospital in Newcastle.
He was being treated for injuries as a result of a fall at Hexham Racecourse on Sunday (7th April).
An MRI scan to his back and neck revealed that the Galashiels jockey suffered only minor injuries, and his agent Bryce Jeffrey said he is desperate to get back in the saddle:
"Ryan feels fine in himself and he is up and walking about perfectly fine. He is hoping to be back in the saddle in the very near future.
"Once again, Ryan and his family would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody for their support, it has been fantastic, and he just can't wait to get back riding again."
