Boat Trip (No. 1) wins the Hollywood Turf Express under jockey Joe Talamo. From the inside, No Silent, Chips All In, and Unbridled's Note finish in a triple dead-heat for second.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. – Boat Trip rebounded from a 12th-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Santa Anita last month to win Sunday’s $100,000 Hollywood Turf Express, a race with a triple dead-heat for second between No Silent, Chips All In, and Unbridled’s Note.

Boat Trip ($9.60) ran six furlongs in 1:08.45, closing from last in a field of five to win by a half-length.

Boat Trip was ridden by Joe Talamo, who guided his mount wide in the stretch to finish on the outside of the horses in the triple dead-heat. Jonny’s Choice finished last.

The stewards spent 10 minutes reviewing a photo before announcing the dead-heat. The stewards said the official photo was inconclusive because Talamo’s head and body partially obscured the position of Chips All In.

Among the three horses who finished second, Chips All In was between No Silent to the inside and Unbridled’s Note.

The triple dead-heat was decided using photo-finish equipment from the racetrack roof. An image of the finish from a mirror on the inside of the track was “inconclusive” for the purposes of determining the order of finish, steward Scott Chaney said. The mirror is adjacent to the tote board but is approximately 40 feet from the inside rail position.

Explaining the decision, Chaney said of the photo for second, “We call them hidden-nose dead-heats.” Chips All In “is hidden.”

“If you can’t separate them, you’ve got to dead-heat them,” steward Kim Sawyer said.

As a result of the triple dead-heat, the first four finishers all paid $2.10 to place and $2.10 to show.  There were three winning payoffs for the exacta and quinella and six winning trifecta combinations.

Unbridled’s Note was the even-money favorite. He raced three wide on the turn and led narrowly in the stretch before being passed by Boat Trip. Boat Trip won his first stakes in the Turf Express since the Tsunami Slew Stakes over a mile on turf here in June 2012.

In the BC Turf Sprint, Boat Trip lost a shoe at the start, trainer Mike Pender said. Boat Trip finished five lengths behind race winner Mizdirection.

Boat Trip, a 4-year-old colt by Harlan’s Holiday, races for Jim Hirschmann and B.J. Wright. Boat Trip was second by a nose to Chips All In in the Grade 3 Eddie D Stakes on the hillside turf course at Santa Anita on Sept. 27. He has won 5 of 14 starts and earned $253,196.

Its interesting to watch that race again, the 3 who deadheated are nose and nose and nose every single step of the race, I cant say Ive ever seen that before ! ! ! The inside horse is about a nose back, but the jock on Boat Trip is obscuring the outside angle, millions of reasons, I cashed, Im happy !

Nakatani stopped riding before the wire or he would have probably gotten a clear cut 2nd place - you can see in the photo he's already standing up. He should be have to answer for that.

where is the mirror?
DeadHeat46 More than 1 year ago
Stewards said the mirror image was inconclusive, which means it's either out of alignment or the inside horses were hidden between the other runners...the most likely explanation.

Help me someone but the day Sharp Cat won a graded stakes in a one horse walkover in southern California was also the same day there was a triple dead heat for the win at the same track.

1944 Carter had Brownie, Bossuet, Wait a Bit in a triple dead heat for the win, and in a 1991 claimer, Scorecard Harry, Cafe Lex, and Space Appeal did the same thing.

FORTUNATLEY they (TVG) talked to Pender on Saturday, he explained the BC shoe incident and pretty much said "winner winner chicken dinner " Thank you TVG. WHAT is Roger Stein complaining about and TVG, I think Todd, is excellent, Paul and "the king of the green " are good also. Stein hasnt room to talk, he has some LUSH on called Bettor Bob, he always going, "ahhhhhhhhh, yesss Royerrr"...........should be the "Lussh Bob Show and Steiney"

Simon is likable, but absolutely horrible as a handicapper. Paul probably is the biggest gambler on the set and he is decent. Todd is a talking head.
IRANIANMULLAH More than 1 year ago
they suck. HRTV all the way. much much better handicappers than TVG.
