A Chain Reaction Takes Out Every Horse In This Race But One

That would be Miss Fifty, the favorite, who barely snuck inside the carnage as all the other horses went down. Sharp Beauty, in the lead, broke down on a muddy track at Charles Town in West Virginia, causing a seven-horse pileup.

Thankfully, astonishingly, Sharp Beauty was the only casualty. All the other horses walked off, and the jockeys suffered only bumps and bruises. In something of a surprise, the race was declared official instead of being called a no contest.
