PICTURE: The smiles and the sun came out for Chris Kinane at Fontwell on Wednesday as he walked a circuit of the parade ring before racing.
Former jockey and trainer Kinane, who suffered serious head injuries when kicked by a horse in the parade ring at Wolverhampton in 2005, was raising money for a new hydrotherapy pool at 'Jack Berry House', the Injured Jockey Fund's second rehabilitation centre for injured jockeys
Kinane, 55, was flanked by his wife Tessa (left in the picture) and his physio Jayne Bradley, and was cheered on by jockeys and members of the public. Crossing the finishing line, an elated Chris said: "It felt brilliant!"
Over £700 was collected on course and Chris's final figure raised for the IJF is set to be in the thousands. Money can still be donated at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RedKinane
