Jockey Henry Brooke is in an induced coma after suffering injuries in a fall at a Hexham racecourse.
His condition at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle is described as “stable”.
“He is in an induced coma to assist him with his breathing,” said a statement from the Injured Jockeys’ Fund.
Brooke, 25, was kicked by another horse after his mount Old Storm, trained by Brian Ellison, fell in a novices’ handicap chase on Saturday.
Racing was delayed for almost two hours while he was treated by on-course medical staff before he could be taken to hospital.
Brooke’s mother, Julia, said on Saturday that her son had suffered a broken collarbone and a suspected collapsed lung.
