Ruby Walsh: Jockey to miss Punchestown Festival with leg injury
Jockey Ruby Walsh will miss Irish jump racing's showpiece Punchestown Festival which takes place next week.
Walsh, 38, aggravated a previous fracture of his right leg in a fall at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
He would have been in line for a string of quality mounts trained by his employer Willie Mullins at the festival, which starts on Tuesday.
"It is hugely disappointing, but I am looking forward to riding once again in the new season," Walsh told Racing UK.
