Woodbine Cancels Card Due to Death of Exercise Rider

Woodbine canceled their eight-race card Friday after 43-year-old exercise rider Darren Fortune died from injuries suffered during a training accident at the Canadian track earlier that morning.

No horses were harmed in the accident and the Ministry of Labour is currently investigating the details.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our community this morning and our hearts and condolences go out to his family and friends,” said Jamie Martin, Executive Vice-President Racing for Woodbine Entertainment Group.
