Broderick in intensive care
Wednesday 02 April 1997
A medical spokesman said: "Shane is seriously ill but there will be no long-term prognosis until the bruising goes down." Broderick was initially taken to the Blanchardstown Hospital before being transferred to the Mater Hospital in Dublin.
The jockey was visited in hospital yesterday by Tom Doran and Michael Hourigan, the owner and the trainer respectively of the top chaser Dorans Pride, a regular mount of Broderick's. Dorans Pride won the Power Gold Cup at Fairyhouse yesterday ridden by the substutute Richard Dunwoody.
"Shane managed a smile but there were tears in his eyes,'' Doran said. Dunwoody said: "We're all thinking of Shane, who is one of the most popular lads in the jockeys room. I hope this win cheers him up a little," Dunwoody said. Broderick was due to ride Back Bar in Saturday's Grand National.
n Going concerns yesterday threw partial doubt over the participation of Master Oats and Suny Bay in the National. Kim Bailey and Charlie Brooks, their trainers, are worried that the ground at Aintree will be too lively to risk their charges. Bailey will walk the course tomorrow to decide whether to run Master Oats. The absence of the 1995 Gold Cup hero would cause the weights to rise by 15lb.
