By Mark Ratzky, publicity – Cal Expo Harness

All four drivers involved in a spill in the 11th race at Cal Expo Saturday evening were treated at the hospital and released the same night without any serious injuries.

Gene Vallandingham suffered some cuts and bruises; Paul Welence had a dislocated shoulder; Patrick Galbraith came away with some minor lacerations on his leg and Mooney Svendsen checked out without any problems.

The four horses involved in the incident all returned to the barn without any apparent issues, according to their trainers.
