Trot Insider has received an update on driver Roger Mayotte, who was involved in a freak accident during Monday's card of harness racing at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

Shortly after the post parade for Monday's ninth race, Odds On Amethyst (Pat Hudon) and Monopoly (Roger Mayotte) collided. Mayotte was dumped out of the bike and Monopoly galloped away while Hudon was able to restrain Odds On Amethyst despite the fact his race bike was broke into multiple pieces.

Mayotte received attention from the on-track EMS crew after complaining of pain in his ribs and shoulder. He was then transported via ambulance to local hospital for further medical attention. Monopoly was eventually collared and was uninjured.

According to Mayotte's family, the horseman suffered fractured ribs and a fractured clavicle as a result of the accident. He also has a partially collapsed lung that doctors are treating which is keeping him in hospital for the time being.
