Corey Brown's riding future remains in doubt after a serious fall last year

Group One winning jockey Corey Brown will know more about his riding future in the coming weeks but it is becoming a real possibility that he will not ride again.

Brown was involved in a fall after his mount, Lord Arthur, broke a back leg and fell in the Queensland Derby last year in which he cracked sternum and a punctured lung.

The Melbourne Cup winning jockey had to undergo surgery on a fractured T7 vertebra which has forced him out of the saddle for over a year.

Brown initially had no plans to retire despite revealing how close he came to not being able to walk but the recovery hasn’t quite gone to plan which could force him into retirement.

“I went to the spine specialist and it still hasn’t mended to how he would like it. So I am going for a pretty extensive bone test,” Brown told After The Last.

“It’s been 15 months now so it’s sort of come to the end of the mending stage. The fork in the road is there, but I’ve just got to wait the next couple of weeks to see what the tests say.

“I’m looking down the path of getting it fused at the moment and that will put me out for a good 12 months.”

The winner of two Melbourne Cups on Shocking in 2009 and Rekindling in 2017, Brown spent several years riding in Hong Kong and Singapore before returning to Sydney at the end of 2016.
