Well known Cork amateur jockey Jack Tyner has died as a result of injuries sustained in a fall at Dungarvan point-to-point last Tuesday.

The 19-year-old son of Kinsale trainer Robert Tyner suffered a heavy fall from Dusmagic at the first fence in the final race on the card. The jockey had been in an induced coma at Cork University Hospital but passed away earlier this morning.

Tyner had partnered four winners from 120 point-to-point rides and had also won two races under Rules. He recorded his first winner on Square Sphere in October 2008 and recently steered impressive winner Whatwillwecallher to victory in a mares’ bumper at Limerick.
