Leading amateur jockey JT McNamara is reported to be in a "stable condition" following surgery on the serious neck injury he sustained at Cheltenham on Thursday. The 37-year-old was injured in a first-fence fall and was airlifted to hospital after being treated by the on-course medics.
Conscious following the fall according to officials at the track, the leading amateur rider was put in an induced coma before his transfer to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol. McNamara underwent surgery on fractured vertebrae yesterday.
