Yonkers, NY---Driver Andy Miller was injured in a Yonkers Raceway accident Tuesday night (April 15).

Miller, driving Marmara Denizi—a 3-year-old gelding co-owned and trained by his brother, Erv, was in the back of the field and unseated during the $10,000 first-race pace.

Also unseated was George Brennan, who was driving 13-10 favorite In The Clear.

In The Clear was a tight-pocket second down the backside the second time when looked to slip out and appeared to step on the wheel of a first-up Fiftyshadesofhay (Dan Dube). In The Clear went down, as did Brennan, who did get up and resume his assignments for the evening.

According to Miller’s wife, Julie, as well as trainer Scott DiDomenico, Miller broke a pair of lumbar vertebrae in his back. As of this writing, he is awaiting transfer from Lawrence Hospital (Bronxville, N.Y.) to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in northern Manhattan for further evaluation and treatment.

Miller has feeling in all his extremities, his wife added.  

The race was won by Keystone Dalton (Jason Bartlett, $9.30) in a maiden-breaking 1:59.
