During the 10th race at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, June 9, an incident occurred approaching the final turn involving several horses and drivers. A major spill took place when Onedin Mach N, driven by Andy Shetler, appeared to take a bad step while racing down the backstretch in second-place.

Four additional horses and drivers were involved in the accident, though no serious injuries appear to have been sustained by any of the horses or drivers behind Onedin Mach N. However, Onedin Mach N was euthanized after suffering a catastrophic injury.

All of the drivers involved were examined and treated by the attending medical staff at Hoosier Park. Two of the drivers involved in the accident, Andy Shetler and Ricky Macomber Jr., were shaken up and took off of their remaining assignments after the 10th race incident.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the connections of Onedin Mach N.
