Driver Nick Steward is on the mend after being injured in a late-November accident at Flamboro Downs.

Steward told Trot Insider that he sustained a broken clavicle from the November 28 spill when his mount was interfered with by a breaker in the race and fell.  

After being released from hospital that evening with a sound examination, Steward said he was later called back with further assessment revealing the fracture. The initial diagnosis of his injury put a tentative timeline for his return to the race bike at eight to 10 weeks. The London, Ont. reinsman has follow up appointments with a surgeon later this week to determine next steps.

In the meantime, the 30-year-old father of three children under the age of six has been keeping busy spending time with his young family and helping his wife Kodie at the barn with their recently acquired pacer Ally Flight.

A career winner of 2,165 races in the sulky, Steward has mainly focused on driving in recent years, with his last training starts in 2015.

"I am looking to train more [in addition to driving]," said Steward, who has 30 career training wins to date, including two this month courtesy of Ally Flight. "Me and my wife kind of want to do our own now. I help her now at the farm with what I can do, but she's been doing a lot of it. I'd like to get some more [when I recover]."

Please join Standardbred Canada in wishing Steward a full and speedy recovery.
