Default Woodbine race 5 tonight

Quite the pile-up as 7/5 favorite breaks hard and takes out most of the field. only 2 horses finish the race.

Amazing part is that every horse in the accident was OK. The drivers were beat to hell, but the horses were fine.

Quote:
The attending ORC vet, Dr. Jack McCall, indicated that all of the horses came out of the accident with no serious injuries. Many had cuts and scrapes, but that was the extent of the injuries.

Thanks for the link and the update Steve.

How is the purse divided with only 2 finishing the race?

I was curious about that myself. I am going to inquire about that this morning, because it is an interesting point. Will get back to you on that.

Ontario racing commission senior judge Pat Webb:

With only two horses finishing the race, Webb told Trot Insider that the purse monies for the third, fourth and fifth placed finishers were divided evenly between the non-offending horses - that being all horses involved with the accident with the exception of Warp Speed. This comes from Rule 18.03 of the ORC rules of racing:

If there are any premiums for which horses started but were unable to finish due to an accident or interference, all unoffending horses that did not finish shall share equally the premiums they would have been entitled to had they finished, and any remaining premiums shall be paid to the race winner.
