Injury forces Lynch into retirementPosted on Friday 4th December 2020 @ 12.42

Jockey Andrew Lynch has announced his retirement from racing after failing to overcome a persistent shoulder injury.

The 36-year-old signs off his career in frustrating circumstances but can proudly boast 20 Grade 1 victories and four wins at the Cheltenham Festival.

Lynch steered top two-miler Sizing Europe to glory on 15 occasions but his time in the saddle is now over after failing to recover from a shoulder issue.

He damaged nerves in his shoulder when falling at last year's Dublin Racing Festival and, despite previously showing optimism about a return, has been told to step into retirement.

Lynch told the Racing Post: "It's official now that I'm not going to be allowed back to ride. I had been doing everything in my power to return, but the specialists haven't been happy with the injury. I have trouble lifting my arm above my shoulder.

"To be fair to the doctors, they gave me every chance to see if I could come back. There are a lot of people worse off than I am and I've had a very good career. Thankfully I have the horses at home to put my time and efforts towards."
