Drivers donate to injured horseman

Post Star

The drivers at Saratoga Casino and Raceway will donate 5 percent of their drivers fee on Wednesday to fellow horseman Anthony Coletta.

Coletta, 31, from Jersey City, N.J., was critically injured in a four-horse accident at Harrah’s Philadelphia Racetrack on Nov. 17 when he was thrown from his sulky and then trampled by a trailing horse.

In addition to the estimated $3,000 drivers’ donation, the Saratoga Harness Horseperson’s Association will contribute $500.
