On a snowy Sunday evening at Hawthorne Race Course, one of the rarest events in racing occurred as a triple dead heat for victory took place. In the 10th race on the card, Picky Picky Valor, Keep the Cash, and Skyway Jaylo all hit the wire together in the Open Trot.
The oddity was actually the second dead heat in the course of the late Pick 4 sequence on Sunday. Mighty Hot Shot and Bestnotlie Hanover were together at the line in the eighth race on the Sunday card.
The entire field for the 10th was bunched at the wire as only two lengths separated the trio that won the race to the last place finisher in the field. Drivers Casey Leonard (Picky Picky Valor), Keith Crawford (Keep The Cash), and Larry Lee Smith (Skyway Jaylo) came together in the winner's circle for the unlikely win photo. (Hawthorne)
