Jockey Henry Brooke
The jockey was partnering the Brian Ellison-trained Old Storm in the intu Metrocentre Always A Winner Novices' Handicap Chase and was in the lead when he came to grief at the second fence.
Clerk of the course James Armstrong said: "Henry is being transferred to hospital after a fall from Brian Ellison's horse in the second race.
"He is not being taken by air ambulance as there wasn't one available in the area, so he is on his way in the ambulance to the RVI (Royal Victoria Infirmary) in Newcastle.
"I believe he was conscious, but I don't have any other information on his injuries."
