Bryony Frost issues statement on her injury

Article 20th March 2019

By The Jockey Club

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 “I've been taken aback by all the support I've received since Monday. 

“It makes you aware how many people are running with you when you hold out your hand and see who reaches out to help and pull you up.  
“The racing world is an extremely caring one. Although we are all strangers within it we become a family when we need each other and that's the beauty of it. 
“Yesterday I went to see an extremely good specialist in Cardiff where my x-ray results have shown that I've fractured my clavicle.
“I suffered a fracture previously which healed well under pressure. 
“My body's response from that fracture makes me positive for when I go back for my assessment in a fortnight's time and a swift return.”
