Corey Brown will be on the sidelines for a minimum of 8 weeks

Jockey Corey Brown is set to have an extended stint on the sidelines following his fall at Eagle Farm on Saturday which required surgery over the weekend.

The Melbourne Cup winning jockey was taken to a Brisbane hospital after his mount, Lord Arthur, broke a back leg and fell in the Queensland Derby on Saturday.

Lord Arthur was euthanised and stewards have adjourned an inquiry into the fall.

“He’s in a bit of pain today. He’s had a bit of a rough night, but things are moving along as planned,” Mr Crisafi told RSN.

“He had surgery that went for five hours on Sunday afternoon and they inserted some heavy plates at the bottom of his spinal cord and that went well.”

“He was actually up and walking yesterday, but he has other injuries as well, including his sternum, a slight puncture of the lung and injuries to his ribs. So he’s been knocked around in a pretty severe way.”

Mr Crisafi said a timeframe for Brown to return to riding is unknown.

“He’s hoping to fly back to Sydney later in the week or the weekend,” Mr Crisafi said.

“We don’t know how long he could be out. It might be six to eight weeks minimum, maybe longer, we’re not sure.”
