A fundraising campaign set up for jockey Freddy Tylicki is closing in on £200,000 in donations in less than 48 hours. Cheap MLB Jerseys .Tylicki has been told by doctors he has a T7 paralysis, meaning he has movement in the upper half of his body but not the lower, after he sustained spinal injuries in a fall at Kempton on Monday.Matt Chapman, a presenter for At The Races TV, set up a GoFundMe page for Tylicki and has been thrilled by the level of support, with various bookmakers all promising a further £10,000 donation each.Racing figures such as Tylickis former boss Richard Fahey, Luca Cumani, Bill Gredley, Sheikh Fahad Al Thani and champion jockey Jim Crowley, who was also involved in the Kempton incident but escaped with a broken nose, have all donated.Speaking from California where he has been working at the Breeders Cup, Chapman said: The response has been overwhelming.I originally set a target of £20,000, not really knowing what to put as I was very conscious that we met the target. My hope was that by starting something straight away, people put their hands in their pockets.[Owner] Bill Gredley was amazing, he put a big donation in, as did Sheikh Fahad and Andrea Atzeni, but what is just as crucial are the smaller donations. One person donating £100,000 is the same as 100,000 people donating £1. It all adds up.The heartbreaking thing about Freddys situation is that he had just made the breakthrough into the big time.Hes not a young lad [at 30], hes had to work his way to the top, but it finally looked like he was where he wanted to be.From that point of view its so annoying and I think that is why its touched so many people, that and the fact he was so well liked, everybody loves being in his company.Leading jockey Frankie Dettori was quick to mention Tylicki following his Breeders Cup Filly & Mare Turf success on Queens Trust at Santa Anita on Saturday evening, and has urged the rider to keep fighting as he continues his recovery process.In the immediate aftermath of the race I had plenty of time to reflect on my good fortune as the postrace formalities seemed to take a little longer than usual. I began to think of my mate back home, Freddy Tylicki, and how fickle this game can be, Dettori wrote in his blog.Although Breeders Cup wins are amongst the most coveted prizes in the sport, Id have gladly swapped them all to have heard that things werent as bad as they seem to be for Freddy. Im reminded again how cruel this job can be and Freddys news has really shaken me.The weighing room is ferociously competitive and I love that sense of battle, but its also where my best mates are too, so when the chips are down for one of our own, we rally round in the best possible way.The way racing is coming together to support Freddy is inspiring. On the biggest stages, like Santa Anita, weve still got to get our priorities right.My Breeders Cup win was for Freddy. Keep fighting mate. NBA Jerseys China . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.
