Seven drivers were involved in a racing accident at Monticello Raceway on Monday, June 3.

Only one of the eight trotters in the race finished. The race was declared a no-contest by the judges. All wagers were refunded.

The accident occurred during Race 2. Get The Money, driven by Jimmy Marohn Sr., stumbled and fell in front of the trailing six horses. All drivers, except Jimmy Marohn Jr., who was on the lead with Halfpipe, were involved in the accident.

Bruce Aldrich Jr., who was scheduled to steer Tracys Song -- the mare with 17 consecutive victories -- in Race 12 has had to book off the drive.

Two of the drivers were taken to local hospital by ambulance, while others were checked out at the track.

Marohn Jr. voluntarily removed himself from all of his remaining mounts for the day.

Two other drivers, Jimmy Taggart Jr. and Jimmy Devaux, who competed in the second race, were able to drive in the third race on the card.

Trot Insider will update this story when more information becomes available.
