Brown has successful surgery

Corey Brown has had successful surgery to correct an unstable fracture in his back
following a fall at Eagle Farm.
Brown was taken to a Brisbane hospital after his mount, Lord Arthur (Camelot)
broke a back leg and fell in the Queensland Derby (Gr 1, 2400m) on Saturday. Lord Arthur
was euthanised and stewards have adjourned an inquiry into the fall. After initially looking
to send Brown back home to Sydney, doctors made the decision to operate on him on
Sunday. Queensland Jockeys Association president Glenn Prentice said the surgery
on a fracture to Brown’s T7 vertebra had gone well. Prentice said no decision had
been made when Brown could return to Sydney
