Fallon riding out for Haggas


Kieran Fallon is back riding out as he continues to receive treatment for depression.

Fallon announced his retirement from the saddle in July after seeking help for 'profound depression' which went unnoticed when he was riding in England and America.

The six-time champion jockey has completed the first phase of his treatment and is now riding out for trainer William Haggas in Newmarket.

"Kieren is riding out for William Haggas in Newmarket a couple of mornings a week, but he still attends his aftercare appointments on a Tuesday," Irish Turf Club chief medical officer Dr Adrian McGoldrick explained.

"Those appointments are in Ireland and he flies back to attend.

"He's doing great. I spoke to him last week and he's heading in the right direction."

Setanta Sports is now eir Sport. We have 6 great channels of live sport including eir Sport 1 & 2 and all 4 BT Sport channels. The eir Sport pack is free to all eir broadband customers. To learn more about setting sport free visit www.eir.ie/sport .
