A day after winning the Grand National, jockey Ryan Mania was airlifted to hospital with neck and back injuries after a fall in a race in Hexham, northern England, on Sunday, the BBC reported.

Mania, a Scot, was in a stable condition in a Newcastle hospital after the fall from Stagecoach Jasper, trained by Sue Smith whose horse Auroras Encore he rode to the National triumph on Saturday.

"He came off the horse at high speed and may have been hit by another horse while he was on the ground," the BBC quoted an ambulance service spokesman as saying.
