Racehorses Collide Head On, Tragically Killing Both

The YouTube description of two racehorses colliding unfortunately describes this video perfectly, “Warning: Video is not for the faint of heart. Two accidents occur with the last one a very violent head on collision on the second turn. You may wish you did not see. It was the worst one that I have seen in a very long time.”

This race was held at Flamboro Downs in Ontario on Thursday night. A crash in the beginning of the race led to a driver-less horse, Buckbuck Mach, racing around the track in the opposite direction. The horse eventually reached the main pack, where it collided head on with A Sudden Twist. Both horses were euthanized following the crash.

Following is video of the terrible event. Proceed with caution.
