An accident occurred during the 13th race at Eldorado Scioto Downs on Saturday, June 15, prompting the cancellation of the remaining races on the card.

GD Western Joe and Chris Page were sitting third going to the quarter when the horse went down suddenly, causing a chain reaction behind them. Drivers Tony Hall, Sam Widger and Jeremy Smith were right behind the fallen horse, and each were taken to local hospitals.

The other drivers and all the horses in the 10-horse field walked off the track under their own power.

The 13th race was declared a No Contest.

The remaining three races on the card were cancelled.

An update on the drivers will be provided if and when possible.
