Pat Smullen enjoyed a day at the Curragh on Sunday as he continues his recovery after being diagnosed with a tumour.
Smullen has been out of action since late-March, but Dermot Weld’s stable jockey explained his recovery was going as well as could be expected.
He told At The Races: “I’m feeling well, everything is going as well as hoped. So far so good is all I can say.
“This was a little goal I set myself from the first day when I got sick, I wanted to come racing on Guineas weekend to support Chiara Luna in the Guineas.
“The shock was the first thing, (for) myself and my family. Once I got over that, I said that this was the situation and now I’m focused totally on fighting it.
“I’ve got a great medical team and I’m getting great support from everybody. What else can you do other than fight it?
“I’d like to thank everybody for the support I’ve had – it’s been worldwide.
“The boss has been amazing, he’s kept me involved, and it’s great to see the horses running so well, I love being part of the team.”
