Top jockey Bryony Frost has issued a statement on the injury she sustained this Monday and thanked the racing family for the huge support she has received since.
The Jockey Club Racecourses ambassador became the first British woman ever to win a Grade 1 race at the Cheltenham Festival when she and Frodon won the Ryanair Chase last Thursday.
But she suffered a fall at Southwell on Monday and was taken to hospital for x-rays which have shown she has fractured her clavicle (collarbone). Bryony, who leads the Conditional Jockeys’ Championship, saw a specialist in Cardiff yesterday (Wednesday).
She told thejockeyclub.co.uk: “I've been taken aback by all the support I've received since Monday.
