A nasty-looking, two-horse spill involving drivers Travis Henry and Bruce Richardson occurred late in the mile in Thursday’s first race at Flamboro Downs.
Mckenna Sister appeared to leap over a pylon that had blown onto the track around the final turn, and she fell right into the path of Designer (Bruce Richardson) who couldn’t avoid the fallen foe. Both drivers were ejected from their bikes and booked off their remaining drives.
Travis Henry was taken to nearby hospital, where he was later released. Henry stated on his Facebook page "I am very lucky to be home right now with a bad headache and a bruised and a sore neck.
Richardson, who landed on his back, booked off the remainder of his drives after suffering a sore hand and knee. There was no update from track officials on the condition of the horses involved in the accident.
