With modern photo-finish technology dead-heats are few and far between these days but not even a pixel separated Drageda and So Var in the fifth at Scottsville yesterday.
We tried, said head judge Wayne Simpson. We blew up the picture until the pixels got blurred.
Drageda looked dead-and-buried 400m out with commentator Craig Peters calling him under pressure, but he rallied hard and was a winner a stride after the line. He was forced to share with So Var in a blanket finish that saw four horses finish within a head of eachother.
Half a loaf is better than no loaf at all so good luck to Dave MacLean
