Trot Insider has learned that three drivers were sent to hospital following a horrible accident which
occurred in Monday night's Ontario Boys Pacing Series at Woodbine Racetrack.
Drivers Roger Mayotte and Robert Shepherd were taken to nearby hospital. Early reports indicate Mayotte suffered a broken shoulder, while Shepherd is believed to have a broken leg.
Mario Baillargeon was taken to a Milton hospital with an ankle injury. Chris Christoforou was shaken up in the accident and booked off the remainder of his drives. Rick Zeron competed in the next two races before booking off the remainder of his drives, as well.
The attending ORC vet, Dr. Jack McCall, indicated that all of the horses came out of the accident with no serious injuries. Many had cuts and scrapes, but that was the extent of the injuries.
Additional updates will be posted when more details are released on the condition of the various drivers.
Video footage of the race was recently posted on YouTube.
