The history-making Australian jockey has been warned her leg injury could still lead to ‘dangerouscomplications down the line

Although on the mend, doctors have warned her of possible ‘dangerouscomplications down the line.

There is a threat that the massive swelling and bruising in her thigh could lead to Compartment syndrome.

Fellow jockey Michael Walker screamed at doctors to cut off his leg after he fell victim to the excruciating conditionwhich occurs from a build-up of pressure from bleeding or tissue swellingfollowing a seemingly innocuous fall.

Fortunately for Payne, who won Australia’s biggest race on Prince Of Penzance in 2015, the soreness and bruising appears to be subsiding.

But she is still left with a cut facewhich had to be stitched togetherafter the terrifying incident on Tuesday morning.

Payne 35, was doing track work at Ballarat, in Victoria, when she got hit.

But rather than dash to hospital she went onto ride four more horses, only going to see doctors once her work was done.

Elle a dit: “It wasn’t one of my own horses. It was a really quiet horse and it got a fright. I fell underneath him and he panicked and kicked me in the chin and the leg.

“Initialement, I couldn’t get up because my leg was so sore. I was able to ride more horsesthe blood was coming out of my chin but was still OK.

I went to the emergency room after track work and they stitched me up and did a head scan.

They were happy enough with my leg, it was just the bruising.

But I saw the doctor again in the afternoon and he said to be really careful with the bruising because it’s similar to what happened with Michael Walker.

If it continues to bleed in the muscle it could be dangerous.

I’ve been icing it flat out and it’s come down. My leg was twice the size it is normally at one point, but it’s definitely coming down.

Payne, the youngest of ten children, was due to ride this weekend but will give up the mount to continue her recovery.

She is the only woman to win the Melbourne Cup and has earned more than £14.1million in her career, avec 764 victoires.
