O’Shea broke away from Paudie at the second fence in Sunday’s New John Dufosee Novices’ Hunters’ Chase.

He was flown to the hospital, the rest of the meeting was canceled.

A statement issued Monday by the Injured Jockeys Fund said: “Following a fall in Wincanton on Sunday, amateur jockey Major Charlie O’Shea received immediate treatment for serious chest injuries from the on-site medical team before being evacuated to Bristol Southmead Hospital.

“He is currently in intensive care under sedation and there will be a further update when he has been further evaluated and treated and more information becomes available.

“His wife Kate and his family are grateful for the care he has received so far.”

O’Shea, 40, served most of that time as a regular with the 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery and now lives in Cornwall.

He is now Naval Liaison Officer for Gunfire in the Royal Artillery Reserves and recently won the historic Royal Artillery Gold Cup at Sandown on Rolling Dylan.

According to the rules, the amateur jockey has five wins to his credit.
