Coming Dead First

Dead jockey wins race, Frank Hayes

On June 4th, 1923 a horse called "Sweet Kiss" won a steeplechase horse racing event at Belmont Park on Long Island, New York......and that horse was being ridden by a dead man!

The jockey, Frank Hayes, died during the race, but incredibly stayed on the saddle. To this day he is the only dead jockey to ever win a race!
