'Steady progress' for injured jockey Brian Toomey
Jockey Brian Toomey reportedly made "good steady progress" over the weekend as he continues to recover from serious head injuries suffered in a fall at Perth on July 4.
Toomey, 24, was hurt when the Lisa Harrison-trained Solway Dandy fell heavily three out in the Book Now For 2014 Perth Festival Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle.
He was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, where he remains in a stable condition having undergone an operation to reduce swelling on his brain on July 7.
In a statement issued on Monday, Lisa Hancock, CEO of the Injured Jockeys Fund, said: "I spoke to Marian Toomey, Brian's mother, earlier today and she reported that Brian made good steady progress over the weekend and remains in a stable condition."
