Trot Insider has learned that the three drivers that were unseated during the Sunday (April 17) racing accident at Century Downs have been released from hospital. Given the situation, two of the drivers have come out of the ordeal relatively unscathed, but one was not as lucky.

Ed Hensley, who was driving Attack Modes Billy during the race, has suffered three broken ribs and a punctured lung.

Ryan Grundy, who was driving Justabitcrazy in the race, was released with no major injuries, just a few cuts, some bruising and soreness.

Brandon Campbell, who was driving Pass The Port in the race, got checked out at the hospital. He suffered some bruising and is sore. Pass The Port had to be euthanized after the accident after having sustained a serious knee injury.

Campbell has vowed to be back driving at Century Downs this coming weekend.

"It's what I do. It's what I love,” Campbell has told the CBC. “I'll be back there this weekend.”

Campbell also took the chance to comment on the euthanization of Pass The Port. He explained that the Standardbreds that horsepeople work with are more than a mere commodity. Campbell said that harness horses are “members of our family.”

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the connections of Pass The Port, and in wishing all of those involved in the accident a quick and complete recovery from their injuries.
