A retweet from his official Twitter account confirmed he had not sustained any fractures from the fall.

And he intends to ride again on Tuesday before saddling four runners on Thursday.

The fall and hospital visit capped a surreal end to the day for the legend of racing Down Under.

His plane from Melbourne was delayed which meant he missed his first ride at Eagle Farm in Brisbane.

The fall then meant the three-time Melbourne Cup winner missed a later winning ride on Soxagon.

Boss' unseating came after earlier drama in which a horse was withdrawn after getting his neck stuck in the stalls.

Ballistic Boy had to be released by stewards and axed from the race after plunging his head into the turf.

The horse was stuch for a 'few moments' according to reports from Australia.

Jockey Matt McGillivray said the incident happened without warning.
