Training Accident Shelves Sowerby

After being sidelined for seven weeks earlier this year, Trot Insider has learned that driver Stuart Sowerby was injured in a training accident on Saturday morning.

The 40-year-old resident of Guelph, Ont. suffered a broken collar bone after being knocked off the sulky while training horses at Rob Fellows’ farm.

“I got run into and another horse hit me off the cart and kind of drilled me into the ground,” said the career winner of 913 races, who represented Great Britain in the 2003 World Driving Championship. "I went to see the orthopaedic surgeon [Wednesday] morning and I have to go in for surgery on Friday morning. They have to plate and pin it I guess and get it patched up."

Sowerby, who suffered another bout of bad luck earlier this year when he was out of action due to injuries from a single-horse spill at Flamboro Downs, told Trot Insider that he is expected to be out of service for a few months.

"It's going to be six to eight weeks," said Sowerby of his anticipated recovery time. "They said it will be six weeks and then probably another couple of weeks with physio."

Please join Standardbred Canada in wishing Sowerby a speedy recovery.
