An accident in the fifth race on Saturday (Aug. 1) at Woodbine Mohawk Park caused driver James Macdonald to be taken to hospital.

The incident occurred at the top of the stretch when 3-5 favourite Best In Show, first over while edging to the lead, jumped and veered into Highlandbeachlover. Highlandbeachlover jolted inside, causing Sports Column (driven by James Macdonald) to trip over a wheel and go down. Yacht Seelster and Tyga Hanover raced gapped from the rest of the field into the stretch and also went down over Sports Column.

Reports indicate that Chris Christoforou, driving Yacht Seelster, managed to walk off the track but he did book off his remaining drives. Filion, behind Tyga Hanover, stayed in the sulky and got Tyga Hanover back on his feet. MacDonald was taken to hospital with a possible concussion and broken collarbone.

All horses walked away okay with only minor cuts and bruises.

Trot Insider will provide updates on the drivers' health when it becomes available.
