Gate Malfunction during Horse Race.

Jockeys avoided injury but one horse was hurt Thursday night when equipment malfunctioned at Hoosier Park.

The incident happened during the eighth race Thursday night. Hoosier Park officials said a tractor that pulls that starting gate malfunctioned after the gate moved 8-10 feet.

There were eight horses competing in the race, and most didn’t contact the gate. One horse was injured, but not fatally.
