A nasty-looking accident occurred in Race 11 at Woodbine Racetrack on Thursday evening, and as a result driver Pat Hudon will spend some time on the sidelines
Feels Good (Joe Hudon), who was first-over, veered in and struck the wheel of Lucky Taryn (Anthony MacDonald) in deep stretch. As a result, Feels Good fell to the track and caused a chain reaction of interference to trailing horses.
Mater Deo (Phil Hudon) got her racebike clipped by the fallen horse’s sulky, and as a result her pilot was ejected from the bike. Celebrity Dollfin (Pat Hudon) couldn’t avoid the fallen horse, and as a result she tripped and fell while sending her driver out of the racebike, as well.
Joe and Phil Hudon came out of the accident with no major injuries, however, Pat Hudon is expected to miss some time.
WEG's Chris Hickey reported during Friday evening's broadcast that Pat did go to local hospital on Thursday evening following the accident. He indicated Pat pulled a muscle in his calf and suffered a separated shoulder.
Please join Standardbred Canada in wishing Pat Hudon a speedy recovery.
