UPDATE ON RIDERS LYNDIE WADE AND RANDY MEIER INJURED DURING THE THIRD RACE

Stickney, IL – Riders Randy Meier and Lyndie Wade were injured during the running of Hawthorne’s third race on Friday.

Both riders were transported to Loyola Hospital in Maywood. Wade was unconscious at the time. He remains unconscious at this time (4:30 Central time).

Meier apparently injured his left shoulder and arm. It appeared that he had at least one possibly more, fractures in that arm.

Chestnut Gold, ridden by Wade, broke down coming out of the far turn. She was euthanized following the race. Arazi Lady, with Meier in the irons, appeared to trip over her fallen comrade, tossing Meier to the ground. Arazi Lady seemed to be fine after the race.

In addition, in the sixth race, Tim Thornton was thrown when his mount Tough Tiz stumbled leaving the starting gate. Thornton took off the rest of his mounts with soreness in his arm and abdomen.
