As the horses came around for the final stretch of Race 8 at Bathurst Racecourse, a gauntlet of sprinklers screwed everything up. Path To Freedom ended up passing Run Bullet Run and Roman Victory to win the race, and those tickets were honored, but there was good news for losing bettors. All non-winning tickets were refunded due to the sprinkler mishap. The idea of horse racing with non-lethal obstacles—Arena Horse Racing?—is an interesting concept, though.
