Two veteran Victorian jockeys will have surgery and have an extended stay on the sidelines following recent falls.

Kevin Forrester will have surgery to repair a fractured pelvis after falling during trackwork at Cranbourne on Wednesday.

Victorian Jockeys Association chief executive Matthew Hyland said Forrester was conscious and in a stable condition after also incurring internal bleeding.

He was to undergo surgery on Wednesday and will be out of the saddle indefinitely.

Craig Robertson needs surgery to repair ligament damage in a shoulder and faces up to six months on the sidelines following a tumble at the Bendigo jump-outs last week. He also broke a finger in the fall.

Former jockey Stephen Brown Jr remains in intensive care at Royal Melbourne Hospital following a fall at the Wangaratta jump-outs last week.
