Dr. Bramlage slated to be released from hospital Friday

Equine surgeon Dr. Larry Bramlage, who suffered a head injury in a fall on the Churchill Downs last week, is scheduled to be released from the hospital Friday, Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital posted on its Twitter account Thursday.

“Dr. Bramlage had his CT scan and was stable. They switched from IV to oral meds and plan to release him from the hospital tomorrow,” the tweet said. “If all goes to plan he will be checked again on Tuesday to decide when he will be ready to return to Rood & Riddle.”

Dr. Bramlage was transported to University Hospital in Louisville for observation last Thursday afternoon  after falling from a golf cart while on the Churchill Downs backstretch and hitting his head. Bramlage was briefly knocked unconscious after the fall and remained in the Louisville hospital through the weekend before being released on Monday.

Bramlage was readmitted to a Lexington hospital for observation on Wednesday.
