Fri 23 Feb 2018

Apprentice Keelan Baker remains in hospital after suffering complications following a fall at Wolverhampton on Tuesday evening.

While Baker initially appeared to have escaped serious injury when he was unseated from Let Me In in the Betway Live Casino Handicap, he is still being treated after requiring surgery on Wednesday.

A statement from the Injured Jockeys Fund said: "Following his fall at Wolverhampton on Tuesday, February 20, apprentice jockey Keelan Baker was taken to the New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton with a suspected broken femur.

"Although X-rays revealed that the leg was not broken, subsequent complications arose on Wednesday which caused his leg to swell and him needing a surgical procedure called a fasciotomy to release the pressure. He remains in hospital for ongoing treatment.

"​Keelan wishes to thank Wolverhampton Racecourse for their swift action and continuing support to his family, the BHA staff for their equally brilliant support to his family, and his fellow jockeys for their kind comments and messages."
