Pace Car, Racing Horses Collide On Central NJ Track

Posted: Updated:
FREEHOLD, N.J. -

It was a very scary scene Friday at Freehold Raceway, a horse-racing track in central New Jersey. This video may be disturbing to watch.

The pace car skidded out of control and into several horses and drivers.

Seven trotters were entering the first turn when the car slid toward the infield.

Only the lead horse cleared the car. We're told the horses were not injured.

Four drivers were taken to the hospital.

There's no word on their conditions.
