Harrington, DE --- Four horses and drivers were involved in an accident-marred seventh race on Thursday at Harrington Raceway.

Rainpan (Billy Mann) was racing third on the outside, and a gapped-out Rose Run Elliott (Wayne Long) attempted to close a hole. Mann tried to put Rainpan in a fast-closing hole and was run into by Rose Run Elliott, which caused a chain reaction which also took out Big Bad Bird (Eddie Davis, Jr.) and Genome (Jim Morand).

All of the horses escaped injury, but Mann and Davis were taken to nearby hospitals for further examination.

As of 10 p.m. (EDT), Davis’ injuries were believed not to be serious and Mann was rumored to have suffered leg and back injuries -- but no official report was available at the time of this writing.

As for the rest of the card, driver Brad Hanners won five races on the program -- all within the first eight races -- and Brandon Givens registered a driving triple.

Racing will resume on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. (EDT).
