Henry Brooke: Thanked supporters via twitter
Brooke was transferred to the Royal Victoria Infirmary, in Newcastle, when he fell from the Brian Ellison-trained Old Storm at the second fence of a two-and-a-half-mile handicap chase.
The rider was also kicked by another horse when he hit the ground, with racing delayed for almost two hours while he was treated by on-course medical staff before he could be taken to hospital.
Brooke was initially placed in an induced coma but was reported to have regained consciousness on Sunday evening and tweeted an update on Monday morning.
He tweeted: "Thank you so much for everyone's support and well wishes. On the mend now and hope not to be out for too long."
