A rare double dead heat finish in race 4 at Keeneland today. The race was a one mile allowance race on the turf for fillies and mares 4 year olds and up.
EMPRESS ELEANOR trailed early and took the four path before swinging seven wide into the lane. She ran in hot pursuit of ENJOYITWHILEWECAN hitting the wire exactly at the same time as EMPRESS ELEANOR. Both horses finished 3 ½ lengths ahead of WE THE CLOUDS in second and SECRET TIME in third.
While waiting for the results from the judges, it was discovered there was a second dead heat further down the running order for fifth place between URBAN FAIRYTALE and HAT TIP.
The win was awarded to both mares splitting the $79,247 in prize money for first place. ENJOYITWHILEWECAN is a bay mare by QUALITY ROAD out of UNICITY, by DYNAFORMER. EMPRESS ELEANOR is a bay filly by EMPIRE MAKER out of HALF A.P. by PULPIT.
The dead heats mixed things up a bit for the second pick 4 and other exotic bets. Here's the payouts for the race:
