Otago’s Wingatui racetrack
Wingatui thoroughbred trainer Steve Anderton has died in Dunedin Hospital a day after being injured in an accident at his stable. The Anderton family have trained many great winners over a 100 years.
Anderton was found about 6.30am unconscious at the side of a loading door of his horse float at the stable on Wingatui Rd.
It is understood the door landed on Anderton’s chest, puncturing both his lungs and restricting his breathing
The 44-year-old’s life support was switched off today.
