Lorna Brooke Jockey in a “serious but stable” situation Racing News
Amateur jockey Lorna Brooke is in a “serious but stable” condition after the fall of Taunton.
Brooke was in the orchestra with her mother, Lady Susan Brooke, when she fell on the third fence of Thursday’s Pontispool Equine Sports Center Handicap Chase.
The races were delayed by more than an hour as they were treated on the track before being taken to an air ambulance.
A statement from the Injected Jockeys Fund on Friday morning said: “Amateur jockey Lorna Brooke is in Bristol’s Southmeads Hospital after falling at Taunton Racecourse yesterday.
“He is in intensive care in a serious but stable condition and is conscious. He is undergoing observations and tests for a spinal injury.
“Her parents, Sir Alistair and Lady Susan Brooke kindly demand privacy at this difficult time.”
