A RACING LAW DECISION DECISIONA DECISION A question of racing law was decided at Brighton in the dead heat between Gold Crest and Ferrier Fierier which it may be useful to quote After the dead heat the parties interested in Gold Crest claimed that in the run off he should be entitled to the pole he having started on the outside and taken the pole from Ferrier Fierier finishing on the inside The stewards decided that such would apply in a race of heats but in a dash race a dead heat is an unfinished race and that the horses should take their places as drawn for the race The equity of the decision is seen in the fact that a dead heat is against every horse in the race except the dead heaters whose relative standing is the same as before the race was run
