Delaware Park: Spill results in no contest


STANTON, Del. - Monday's sixth race at Delaware Park was declared a non-contest following a spill shortly after the start of the mile and 70-yard maiden race on the turf that prevented the riders from finishing.

Kristina McManigell, who was aboard Classical Destiny, had her horse run up on the heels of rivals leaving the chute and clip heels, throwing her to the turf. McManigell lay motionless near the inner rail near the sixteenth pole as the race progressed while two of Delaware's outriders placed their mounts to the front and outside of her. The trackwide alarm system, which has a series of flashing lights and sirens at several points around the track, was activated as the leaders moved through the second turn. As the field turned for home the jockeys stopped riding their horses and the two outriders galloped along the inside and directed the horses and riders to the outside and away from McManigell.

An inquiry was immediately posted, and soon after it was announced the race was declared a non-contest. All wagers were canceled except the daily double for the fifth and sixth race and the pick three for the fourth, fifth, and sixth. In those two wagers, all bettors who had the previous winners in the sequence were paid.

McManigell, who had movement in her legs and head, was removed from the track and transported to Christiana Care Medical Center for examination.

Classical Destiny was not injured.

Obviously, someone's account was hacked or this is a BOT. Has no place in such a story.
