Keelan Baker statement from the Injured Jockeys Fund

Keelan Baker statement from the Injured Jockeys Fund

by IJF |  23 Feb 2018

Following his fall at Wolverhampton on Tuesday 20 February, 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.
