in reading the official chart, the chart caller seemed to believe that the two horses were equally to blame. However, I do not see how you can watch the head on and come away with that conclusion. One horse left his lane to enter the other horse's lane. Only way you fault the second horse is to say it should have moved out of the way when the inside horse lunged at it rather than holding its course. That seems very odd to me.
Usually I am very impressed with the chart callers and the quality of charts has been superb in recent years. However, this chart leaves me shaking my head.
I cannot reconcile what I saw with my own eyes versus other people's view of the same thing.
