A shocking fall has resulted in some serious injuries to two drivers and a horse tragically killed on Tuesday night.
The three-horse crash occurred in the final race as the horses were in the back straight for the final time at Albury Paceway.
The Ron Calleja-trained and driven Illawong Argyle appeared to be checked and subsequently locked wheels with the Royce Gregory-trained and driven Terror Ofa Saint resulting in both pacers and drivers crashing heavily to the track.
Wagga reinsman Trevor Sutherland who was driving Nicky Khan was then spectacularly catapulted several metres airborne before he also landed heavily.
