Megan Taylor Husband: Was Megan Taylor Married? Megan Taylor, a jockey, died in a sad way when she was 26 years old. Megan Taylor was hurt badly after she was caught in a four-horse fall. People say that she fell off her horse when another horse hit her while she was on the track.
Megan Taylor, who died, was riding Red Orchid in a race at New Zealand’s Ashburton racecourse when the sad thing happened. People say nice things about the dead jockey.
“Our Event Health Services team were already present at the racecourse for the event,” a spokesperson said.
“We further responded to the incident with two ambulances and one operations manager.
“One patient was taken to Ashburton Hospital with moderate injuries. Two other patients with minor injuries were assessed and treated at the scene.”
Taylor was only in her third season of riding and has ridden 16 winners.
The tragedy comes just four months after jockey Taiki Yanagida died from injuries suffered in a race fall at Cambridge in Waikato.
Racing minister Kieran McAnulty passed on his sympathies to Taylor’s family on Twitter.
“I’m incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of jockey Megan Taylor during a race this afternoon. I want to pass on my deepest sympathies to Megan’s family and friends, and to all of those in the industry who worked alongside her and knew her.”
The Australian Jockeys’ Association said it was a “sad day in racing”.
“Sending our deepest condolences to family and friends of Megan Taylor who sadly passed after a race fall in NZ, also sending our best to the two other fallen riders. A sad day in racing.”
Taylor started her career in racing in 2019 after returning from Europe where she had spent two years working for New Zealand Olympic equestrian couple Tim and Jonelle Price.
“I had spent the last couple of years working for Tim and Jonelle Price, but when my visa expired, I came home to New Zealand,” she said in 2021.
“I started looking for a trackwork rider position and luckily there was one available with John.
“I’ve always loved working with animals, as along with my work as a groom, I also did three years in a shearing shed after I left school.
“People told me I had the build to be a jockey, so I guess that is how it has turned out and thankfully riding has come pretty naturally to me.”
In an interview a fortnight ago, Taylor described a love of horses that led to her becoming an apprentice jockey.
”Loved horses my whole life, love going fast. Small, small enough to be a jockey [and I] just thought ‘this is where I want to go’.”
