    One of New Zealand's leading harness racing drivers is in a stable condition after being rushed to hospital following a shocking mid-race incident


    Driver Ricky May was flown to Dunedin Hospital last night, after collapsing during a meeting at the Omakau track in Central Otago.

    He fell backwards, seemingly unconscious in the sulky, before falling to the ground.

    The race steward's confirmed May had a heart attack.

    He's reined nearly three thousand winners since he began racing in 1976.
