Jockey Bryony Frost says she sustained serious internal injuries after being unseated from her horse on 6 July.

Frost originally believed she had only suffered bruising in the incident at Newton Abbot and intended to ride the following day.

However, the Devon jockey has now confirmed that a horse stepped on her abdomen after her fall, causing more severe damage than initially thought.

“I had a small liver tear and bruising to my pancreas,” she told Matchbook.
