A Nose Is Not a Nose Is Not a Nose

Like an unconscious parody of Gertrude Stein, the races at Sandown Park in Victoria, B.C. recorded a monotonous rhythm on the photo-finish camera. In the fourth race on October 4 (far left) Tismine was the winner by little more than the skin of its nose over Silver Mint. In the sixth race (center) Mandy's Magic (foreground) finished nose to nose in a dead heat with Kay's Image. Then in the seventh race Ambling Fox (foreground) and Feridon matched noses in another dead-heat finish. It was the first time at Sandown that two dead heats had been run for win money on the same day, let alone in consecutive races.
