Jockey Noel Callow has escaped with only soft-tissue damage from a fall at Geelong.
Callow was taken to hospital complaining of soreness in both arms and legs after being dislodged from Team Hawkes-trained Turnstar on the way to the barriers before the first race.
It is unclear whether blustery conditions, which preceded a hailstorm, led to the Star Turn colt becoming fractious and tipping Callow off.
Stewards attempted to review the incident after the fact but were unable to find any vision.
The low-speed fall, which led to races being pushed back 30 minutes, occurred near a crossing on the track, about 200m past the winning post.
Callow was sent for scans after being treated on-course.
It capped a torrid week for the 45 year-old, who has been a lightning rod for controversy.
Callow was the victim of an unfounded and scurrilous social media attack on Tuesday.
He was then involved in the sad loss of a galloper at Caulfield on Wednesday, with his mount, Evie Girl, failing to finish after suffering a suspected heart attack in the home straight.
The experienced jockey was discharged from hospital late on Friday afternoon.
He remains booked to ride six horses on Saturday at Camperdown.
