Truro Raceway General Manager Steve Pottie has commented on the Sunday (September 20) accident at the track where a water truck flipped over and poured water onto the racecourse, which ultimately led to the rescheduling of the live program.

Pottie spoke with the Truro Daily News on Monday. He didn’t offer many specifics in regard to the incident, but he did corroborate an earlier Trot Insider report which explained that nobody was hurt in the rare occurrence.

"No person or no horse was hurt in any way," Pottie told the Truro Daily News. "Just the water truck turned over, but we've got it righted now, and by luck and circumstance we had a new water truck just arriving this week, so we seem to be lucky."

The article states that it took two hours for the truck to be flipped back over and everything cleaned up. Pottie said Monday that an investigation into what exactly happened is still ongoing.

"I think there was probably a combination of things; no one person's real issue or anything like that,” Pottie said. “We're still gathering information."

Truro’s Sunday card has been rescheduled and will be raced this Thursday (September 24). First-race post time will be 7 p.m. To view the entries, click here.
