While drivers and horses were able to avoid a tractor that entered the course mid-race, all wagers on the evening's ninth race were refunded on Saturday night (December 17) at Flamboro Downs.
As the field of six trotters passed the third quarter mark and entered the final turn, they were forced wide around a tractor that had mistakenly entered the racecourse early. The incident prompted a refund of wagers totalling $11,953.
Air Dynamic and driver Anthony MacDonald led through the first lap around the half-mile track with 4-1 shot Skyflex and Jean Francois Maguire moving up to gain a slight lead on the outside as they approached the tractor in the final turn. After maneuvering around the vehicle, Skyflex went on to win by the two and a quarter lengths over Air Dynamic in 2:00.
