ABSTRACT
The article presents the winners in the April 1970 horse racing event in the U.S. Hydrologist, Never Bow, Gaelic Dancer, and Gleaming Light passes the winning post so closely aligned that it took the placing judges a bit longer than usual to announce their findings after studying the photograph. The margins were a nose, a nose, and a neck.
