After seeing my specialist I can confirm I have a T12 compression fracture after my fall at Arlington Park last Saturday, which sadly saw Permian lose his life. He will be sorely missed and my condolences go to HH sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum and the team at Mark Johnston Racing. I will have the injury re-scanned in 6 weeks time and will know more then. While I am disappointed I will be missing a large chunk of the season I have plenty of respect for the injury and realise how lucky I have been. I would like to thank all the well wishers and everyone who helped me immediately after the accident at Arlington Park, the doctors at the hospital in Chicago and the whole racing community. I would also like to thank my family and friends and HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum for their support.
