A Dead Jockey For Freaky Friday...!

Here is a strange story for Freaky Friday about a jockey winning a race, even though he was dead!The story comes from Listverse

Frank Hayes

Frank Hayes was a jockey who is most well known for being the jockey to win a horse race whilst dead! Hayes suffered a fatal heart attack in the midst of a race at Belmont Park in New York atop his horse “Sweet Kiss”. Despite carrying a dead weight, Sweet Kiss ran ahead of the field and won the race.

Heck of a way to be declared the winner of a race, if you ask me. After all, the poor horse had to do all the work...right?

Coffee out on the patio this cool morning.

Poor horse ran out of fear maybe. Sad story for jocky.

Pretty chilly here to and the wind is blowing. I'll put on a flannel and be right there.
