THREE-time Southern District premiership-winning jockey John Kissick is taking some time to weigh up his future in the sport.
Kissick will this week see a specialist as old injuries, including the broken leg he sustained at last year's Gold Cup carnival, continue to give him trouble.
Kissick is off to Melbourne this week to see the specialist but is sick off his injuries flaring up every few weeks.
The talented jockey missed more than three years after a steer-riding accident in 2016, and then sustained a broken leg 12 months into his comeback that kept him out for another year.
Kissick will make a decision on his future after the visit to the specialist.
