Jockey Corey Brown is now back in the saddle after undergoing successful shoulder surgery earlier this month.
The Sydney rider took part in four barrier trials this morning, before announcing he would ride all eight races at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse this weekend.
Brown had struggled with re-occurring pain in his shoulder for some time and was forced to rely on painkillers to continue his riding career.
However, he is now back to his best after surgery to remove a wayward plate in his shoulder.
“My shoulder is giving me no trouble at all and it is one hundred per cent compared to what it was,” said Brown.
“Before the operation I was taking a few or more painkillers a day and they still weren’t working.
“But from the moment I left the hospital I haven’t had a painkiller.
“It was a different type of pain. You could tell something was annoying it … the plate had moved and something was going on.
“Once the pressure was relieved you could just tell. It was gold.”
He was originally due to return to racing earlier, however, a suspension given on New Year’s Day meant he had no choice but to have two weeks.
Brown may get an elusive ride in the $250,000 Inglis Classic, with his mount Everage currently in the running to make the 14 horse field.
The jockey will also be aboard Secessio, Riva De Lago, Loch Leven and Disciple.
