Zone Breaker and Rotten to the Core finished in a dead heat for second.
  • humphrey · Dead Heat: when horses used to be required to win two heats (the way the Little Brown Jog is still run today) and there was, in the opinion of the "eyeballing" placing judges a result too close to decide which horse was declared the winner of the heat, That particular heat was therefore useless in deciding which horses would advance so for all intents and puroposes us was DEAD. Hense the name for a tie is a dead heat. · 1414 days ago
  • humphrey · Using a digital scan photograph, we often have to enlarge it to 300 times the original size in order to try to differentiate the noses...At that magnification however, pixels start making the smooth curvature of the snout irregular so if no discrimination is available, it is called a dead heat. Many is the time a tongeu or forelimb has been ahead but only the nose counts. · 1414 days ago
