Oceanview Kitty remained unscathed in an accident that occurred in her Atlantic Sires Stakes "A" division for two-year-old filly pacers on Saturday at Exhibition Park Raceway.

The accident occurred going into the final turn of the 11th race of the evening card when O U Hussy (Marc Campbell) fell causing Larshegoes (Clare MacDonald) to follow suit.

There was no word on the conditions of either horses or drivers following the accident, but Campbell did drive in the following 12th race.

If an update becomes available, Trot Insider will pass it on.
