It was just another day at the office for Damian Browne when he reported for trackwork at Corbould Park two days before this year’s Magic Millions meeting.
He was suddenly struck down by crippling stomach pains and a couple of hours later underwent emergency surgery for a burst ulcer.
He talks about the ramifications of his illness and the prognosis he didn’t want to hear.
Damian takes us through the highlights of a career which saw him join the upper echelon of Australian jockeys in the last decade.
