New Zealand jockey Ashlee Mundy has died after a fall at Kurow.

Mundy was flown to Dunedin Hospital in a critical condition after the fall in the seventh race at the track in North Otago. A spokeswoman confirmed that she died in hospital.

Mundy (26) was a freelance jockey at the Gold Coast Turf Club in Queensland, Australia, but had gone home to New Zealand a couple of weeks ago to ride in the summer circuit.

Her horse Elleaye clipped heels at the 600-metre mark and she fell into the path of following horses. She had ridden 232 winners in New Zealand and 43 in Queensland.
