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.
